ONE IS A FEAST FOR A MOUSE A Thanksgiving Tale

by | Read by Kirby Heyborne

Children Ages 4-6 • 7 mins. • Unabridged • © 2009

Narrator Kirby Heyborne shares what happens on the Thanksgiving table when Mouse comes out of his "hidey hole," scampers up the tablecloth, and spies the leftovers. Mouse knows that the one pea he spies would be a feast, but his eyes grow bigger than his stomach as he gathers more treats for himself. Heyborne strikes just the right note of enthusiasm as a cranberry, an olive, a carrot stick, a plate, and more are precariously balanced atop the single pea. Author Cox's adjectives are rich--cranberries are "glowing like rubies," and pumpkin pie is "brown and dimpled, with a collar of fluffy cream." Heyborne lingers lovingly on the descriptions. And then the cat awakes and reaches for the tablecloth! Repetition, delicious words, and suspense provide Thanksgiving fun. A.R. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2014]
