Can moose be Bridget's brothers?
Bridget is fed up with being an only child -- it's too quiet. If she just had a brother or a sister, she wouldn't feel so lonely. One day Bridget comes home to discover some moose sitting outside her building, and she decides to try them out as brothers. But the moose brothers don't turn out to be the sort of siblings she had in mind. Maybe peace and quiet is okay after all . . .
This follow-up to Bridget and the Gray Wolves and Bridget and the Muttonheads is riotously funny and wild and will once again have readers both young and old laughing at Pija Lindenbaum's hilarious illustrations and Bridget's winning personality.
Pija Lindenbaum has written and illustrated many books for children, including the New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Children's Book Boodil My Dog. She has also illustrated Astrid Lindgren's Mirabelle. She lives in Sweden.
"In the grand tradition of the Cat in the Hat and Pinkwater's absurd marauding animals...This will make other 'lonely onlies' feel a bit better about their state, while kids with mooselike siblings will enjoy telling their own stories of wild behavior." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Fans of [Bridget's] previous encounters with sheep and wolves will be pleased to see her deal with this uproarious new challenge." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Kids will giggle their way through." -- School Library Journal
