When the most beautiful moose in the forest is captured by an evil trapper, a shy young moose knows that he must take action. He has always been secretly in love with the beautiful moose. Now he will follow her all the way from Canada to the wilds of New York City. He will rescue his true love come what may. But how? Luckily, Professor Owl McFowl has concocted a new formula-an invisibility potion! In this delightfully silly story of magic and adventure with a surprisingly touching core, our moose hero shows us that the truest beauty isn't visible to the eye-it can only be seen by the heart.

Such a moose you have never seen. After being struck by a falling tree his antlers 'twisted upward like twin question marks.' Leave it to popular illustrator Steven Kellogg to capture him in full-page full-color smile provoking paintings. Of course, having his portrait painted probably doesn't interest this young moose very much because he is in love with the most beautiful moose in the forest. He's far too shy to approach her. At last, he gathers his courage but has only said a few words when Steel McSteal, wild animal trapper, came careening into the woods and captured the beautiful moose in his big net and carried her off. All of the moose, including the bashful moose, run after Steel to try to rescue her but when they reach the edge of the woods they hear gun shots - hunting season. They can go no further, but the bashful moose squints his eyes and manages to read 'New York City' on Steel's license plate. Of course, the bashful moose has no earthly idea where that is. All he knows is that he must find the one he loves. As it happens, Professor McFowl (a wise old owl) has perfected a serum that will make things invisible, which would enable the bashful moose to go out of the woods without being shot by the hunters. There are two slight problems: Professor McFowl isn't sure how to make things visible again and directions to New York City are a bit vague: 'Make a right at Quebec, and follow the water.' Youngsters will delight in the adventures of the bashful moose as he sets out to find his one true love. As they say, love conquers all and so does moose in love. - Gail Cooke
