Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
The interactive text asks, "What would you do with a moose on the loose? Would you chase him, or race him, or stand up to face him?" Well then, what would you do with a moose in your yard, or in your house? What if it went up to your room, took a bath, or climbed into your bed in your pajamas? What if he says he wants to stay? The absurdities are visualized in the cartoon style illustrations. Their sense of movement and interesting perspectives add to the fun of the bouncy, rhymed couplets. How ridiculous to see the moose on the slide, in the bathtub (very messy) and in bed where he is wearing pajamas and a night cap and has one eye open. Teachers and parents can encourage children to create more scenarios to keep the silly fun going. This us sure to make young readers laugh. Reviewer: Sharon Salluzzo
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—This rhyming text begins by asking: "What/would you do/with a moose/on the loose?/Would you chase him,/or race him,/or stand up to face him?" As the book continues, the creature becomes more daring, and children will delight in the antics of both the moose and its young human companion. Bold, bright, cartoonlike illustrations capture the action in a humorous style, inviting readers to look closely at all the details. The large boldfaced type complements the illustrations and action. Colorful spreads and simple rhymes will make this whimsical story a hit.—Margaret R. Tassia, Millersville University, PA
