Did you know that a cow moose with a calf is one of the most dangerous animals on earth? Or that the reason it's hard to find antlers shed by bull moose every autumn is because mice eat them? This slim volume in the Carolrhoda "Nature Watch" series is filled with interesting facts about the physical characteristics of moose, their diet, habitat, behavior, and predators. Not only is the simple text written with exceptional clarity, but the many color photographs are remarkably precise at illustrating every piece of information. Though the entire book is engaging, two chapters of particular interest are "From Velvet to Bone"--all about antlers, and "The Living Laboratory"--about an unusual island which provides invaluable moose data for scientists. An index and a glossary are included, with the glossary's in-text vocabulary printed in bold to facilitate easy reference. 2001, Carolrhoda Books, Ages 8 to 12, $22.60. Reviewer: Betty Hicks
