Moose n' Me




There’s always one dog. One special dog you’ll never forget. One dog that touched your heart in a way that lasts a lifetime . . . For singer-songwriter Kenny Loggins—whose records have sold more than 25 million copies worldwide—that dog was Moose, his childhood pet. And this touching picture book, with its sweet and appealing illustrations, is based on one of his songs, and tells the unforgettable story of that friendship.

Moose—a chubby, adorable, smiling puppy—and young Kenny do everything together: as Loggins says "Moose thinks I’m his home." They romp, curl up together in bed, have parties with family, and go down to the riverboat near where they live. The protective pup even growls and saves him from an intimidating stranger. The two are inseparable, as a boy and his dog will be.

But the years pass, and as Loggins sets off to pursue his musical dream, he’s forced to leave the dog behind. And one night, while he’s on stage singing, he somehow knows: Moose is gone. Yet he believes, sometime, somewhere, he and Moose will meet again.

Any child who loves and perhaps has lost a beloved pet will relate to Kenny’s story. It sends a message of love straight to the heart and will bring a smile to every child’s face.
