Z is for Moose! Yes, it is!
Z IS FOR MOOSE by Kelly Bingham with illustrations by Paul Zelinsky (Greenwillow 2012) is a wildly funny alphabet book. Moose waits rather impatiently as the alpabet gets underway (though if you look closely, you can see Moose spying early on). However, by the letter "D", Moose is center stage and getting in the way. Finally, the director of this alphabet production (Zebra) gets Moose off stage. However, when "M is for mouse and not Moose, Moose rampages across pages. Zebra manages to bring Moose back by the end of the alphabet, placated for the time being. Wild and zany, this is a book kids will demand be read over and over again. <182>
