Following suit came such classics as Peggy Parish's Amelia Bedelia series, Lillian Hoban's books about Arthur the monkey, and Syd Hoff's popular Danny and the Dinosaur. Many books in this series are special in the depth of emotion evoked - Little Bear, the Frog and Toad books by Arnold Lobel, and Daniel's Duck by Clyde Bulla, to name a few - and all are enjoyed by children of all ages. Preschool - Grade 1.

When is a cow not a cow? When it's a moose! At least, Morris the moose says the cow is a moose. After all, she has four legs, a tail, and things on her head, just like he does. When the cow insists she is not a moose, Morris consults a deer. But the deer says Morris and the cow are both deer - after all, they both have four legs, a tail, and things on their heads, just like he does…Oh dear! Or should I say, Oh deer!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This Early I Can Read book stars a mixed-up moose, with difficulties differentiating among his animal colleagues. Ages 3-7. (Mar.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-- Fans of Morris the Moose will love this new addition to the popular books which feature a lovable four-legged creature who acts like a person. In this story Morris encounters what he considers to be a funny-looking moose. Cow insists that she is a cow but since she has ``four legs and a tail and things on her head,'' Morris concludes that she is a moose like him. Both Morris and the cow encounter similar difficulty when they attempt to have a deer arbitrate their dispute. Finally when the three of them chance to take a drink of water from a stream, Morris and the deer realize that they have been mistaken. Wanting the last word, Morris brings a concluding bit of humor to the tale when he declares that he did not make a mistake, ``I made a MOOSEtake!'' Wiseman's illustrations are in a style similar to those in the other ``Morris'' titles. The images are straightforward and simple with few details. Browns and yellows dominate the pictures. Based on a 1959 book, this edition has been re-illustrated and adapted to the series format. Those wishing for quality titles for very young readers will want it. --Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, Iowa
