Looking for a Moose (Paperback)
Candlewick Press (MA), 9780763638856, 40pp.
Publication Date: July 22, 2008
An ear-tickling, eye-teasing romp for little listeners, led by an award-winning author and illustrator (ages 3-5). Do you really, really want to see a moose -- a long-leggy moose -- a branchy-antler, dinner-diving, bulgy-nose moose? Spurred by Phyllis Root's sing-songy text and Randy Cecil's buoyant illustrations, this hunt for an elusive moose through woods, swamps, bushes, and hills is just as fun as the final surprise discovery of moose en masse. Children will laugh at the running visual joke -- what is that little dog looking at? -- and ask for repeated reads of this satisfying tale.
