Four children set off into the woods to find a moose. An ear-tickling, eye-teasing romp for little listeners, led by an award-winning author and illustrator. Do you really, really want to see a moose - a long-leggy moose - a branchy-antler, dinner-diving, bulgy-nose moose? Spurred by Phyllis Root's sing-songy text and Randy Cecil's buoyant illustrations, this hunt for an elusive moose through woods, swamps, bushes, and hills is just as fun as the final surprise discovery of moose en masse. Children will laugh at the running visual joke - what is that little dog looking at? - and ask for repeated reads of this satisfying tale.

Four intrepid youngsters set out to find a moose–a long-leggy…branchy-antler, dinner-diving, bulgy-nose moose.

The kids in the book can't find a single moose -- but maybe your kids can? A great read-aloud -- kids can tromp, squish and scramble through the forest with the characters, and try to find the moose hidden in the pictures.

Fun illustrations as the children hunt for the moose

When you go out looking for a moose, remember to put on your hats and your boots because you never know what you might find! And remember to keep your eyes open when you are stomping through the woods or wading in the swamp or scrambling up the hillside. He might be lurking anywhere and you could miss him if you weren''t looking very carefully at these marvelous mooseful illustrations!
