This favourite Munsch story is now a colourful, durable board book edition designed just for toddlers!

Luke gets up early one Saturday morning and finds a moose in the backyard. He wakes up his dad, and then his mom, who each declare that "moose never come on the farm!"

Luke feeds the moose carrots and decides to keep it as a pet. When his parents finally see the moose for themselves, mom tries to shoo it away with a broom -- but the moose eats it. Dad tries to scare it away with a hose -- but the moose just takes a nice bath. Finally, his sister comes up with a surprising solution to this unusual problem!

Moose! was inspired by a young boy from Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.

Moose!, by Robert Munsch, is a fun and clever children’s book! I thought that the story line was creative and original, and had a lot of funny moments. The book is mainly about a young boy, and a moose who won’t leave his backyard, along with all of the ways that the boy tries to get the moose to go away. I liked how it ended, and thought that the rest of the story did a good job of leading up to the conclusion. I would definitely recommend this book to other readers, especially younger audiences, as it is truly a cute and entertaining story. @PenelopeScriptor of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

This book is about an enormous moose outside the backyard. They are planning to make it go away but the moose is clever! This book makes me feel happy because it is very funny. I really like animals because they look really fun to play with. If you like reading, then this book is definitely for you. I think you should read this book as soon as possible because it is very nice and interesting. I recommend this book for ages 4 to 10 because it is a childish book. I really like this book because it is very enjoyable and amusing. @Bookworm5755 of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

MOOSE! My kids love this book. The way it's written, it begs to be read with lots of expression. They think it's really funny. The written sound effects are great. My daughter wants me to buy it.
