One is a Feast For Mouse is a Thanksgiving story about a mouse living in a family’s home. After Thanksgiving dinner, when the family is resting and playing, the mouse makes his way to the dinner table. He finds all the leftover food and is happy to see a pea and thinks a pea is a feast for a mouse. However, as he makes his way home across the table, he is enticed by all the other delicious foods. Each time he tries to carry more food and his pile grows bigger and bigger. Eventually, the mouse has a run-in with the family’s cat and ends up dropping all the food! There is a big crash and the mouse runs back to his house. After all the excitement, the mouse finds a pea made its way into his home. He is grateful for the pea and considers it a feast.
