Children's Book Review: Z is for Moose
Z is for Moose
Written by: Kelly Bingham
Illustrated by: Paul O. Zelinsky
Published by: Greenwillow Books, 2012
Caldecott Medalist Zelinsky illustrates an outrageously funny and boundary-breaking story for fans of Jon Scieszka and David Weisner. Zebra wants to put on a show as simple as A-B-C, but Zebra's friend Moose has other (unexpected and hilarious) ideas.
* In this ABC book, Zebra is trying to put on an alphabet show. Moose is so excited to participate that he can't wait for his turn and keeps interrupting. This gets Zebra mad and when the letter M finally comes around, Moose is in for an unexpected surprise. This book was funny yet touching at the same time. My son loved it and was able to read the ABC parts to me. I read the speech bubbles to him.
Family Rating: 1 1/2 thumbs up.
