Synopsis: Grandmother certainly didn't want to ask Mr. Whiskers for Thanksgiving dinner! She was very angry when Maggie asked him. She was even more angry when SOMEONE stole her favorite, secret recipe for cranberry bread! Was Mr. Whiskers the thief?

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Copy the recipe from the back of the book, and make a fancy recipe card to take it home.
•  Make a ?Mr. Whiskers? mask
•  Make a booklet for your own family?s secret recipes.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don’t have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
