Moose has no family, no friends, and rarely entertains visitors. That is, until the day he rescues a bird that cannot fly. Bird turns Moose's solitary life upside down. He sings in the mornings, talks all day long, and he likes to eat worms!
As the days become weeks, Moose and Bird form a special friendship. They eat pond weeds for breakfast, swim every afternoon, and sometimes climb to the very top of the mountain just to enjoy the view. So when a forest fire separates the two friends, Moose is distraught. Bird still hasn't learned to fly, how could he have survived?
Fortunately, before Moose is able to return to his old ways, Bird finds him once again...and this time brings along a few new friends!

It's so difficult to find a book that my nearly four year-old and my seven year-old both want to hear--well, this is it. This sweet and simple story captivated my younger kid as it resonated for the older one--while the clever, gorgeous illustrations mesmerized them both. And the ending had them both laughing out loud!
