In spite of carving out a niche in the picture book world with hard-core issues (like war and homelessness), Eve Bunting has ventured into lighter topics. On the docket this time: a humorous Thanksgiving story.
Mrs. Moose really wants a turkey for Thanksgiving; and what Mrs. Moose wants, Mr. Moose is off to get. Bunting purposely misleads us into thinking the Moose family is hunting for dinner. In fact they are looking for a turkey friend… and no one has more to be thankful for than the turkey.
For the record: I’m still going to enjoy eating my Thanksgiving bird.
