This book was originally written in 1935. If it were written today, It would most likely not be written as a picture book due to the mature content. The content I am speaking about is how everyone keeps saying they should shoot the moose and are waving guns around. Also, there is a lot of racism such as "getting angrier than a Chinaman." I appreciate that this book is advertized for grades 3-7 which is appropriate. I would categorize this as an historical fiction.
With all that said, this book was cute. The whole town had to deal with a hungry moose that snuck into town, ate expensive hay, and wouldn't go away. And of course the young boys dealt with the moose better than the grown men which makes it more fun.
Would I recommend this book? YES. For older readers looking for historical fiction and who like stories about the outdoors
