Moose on the Loose (and a BIG Giveaway)!

Jacket description:

"What would you do with a moose on the loose?
Would you chase him, or race him,
or stand up to face him?
What would you do with a moose on the loose?

What would you do with a moose in your yard? Or in your house? How about in your room? Or in your tub?

Would you give him two boats?
Would you see if he floats?

What would you do?

Colorful, comic artwork highlights the hilarity that ensues when wildlife wanders infoord. Can boy best beast?

By story's end, young readers will know exactly what to do when a moose goes on the loose!"


In Moose on the Loose, author Kathy-jo Wargin and illustrator John Bendall-Brunello have created a very cute story that will definitely have your kids giggling. The consequences of a huge moose in the house are obviously vast and the illustrations, along with the rhyming text, exhibit that on every page. Lots of fun to be had with this one!

At times, the rhymes don't flow quite as nicely as I would have liked, but once you get the rhythm and get into the story, it works out well. The book would make for a nice read aloud for toddlers, up through elementary school.

The publisher of Moose on the Loose, has kindly offered THREE copies to give away to my readers. The book would make a great gift or just nice to have on your own shelves for your kids, so make sure you enter!

Leave a comment on this post by Sunday night at 11:59pm to enter. If you blog about it, Twitter about it, or Facebook about it, you get one extra entry for each, just make sure you leave an extra comment for each too.

U.S. only for this one!

Awe that's so cute! I am sure my kindergarteners in the past would just love a book like this. I can just imagine them giggling at the lines. The illustrations (from what I can see) look really cute, too!

Whoever wins a copy, is really lucky! I know I sure would love to win a copy for my daughter!

I'm always looking for good animal books for preschool story time. I've had a soft stop for moose since Numeroff's If You Give a Moose a Muffin. Looks like a great book. Thanks for reviewing it.
