When Mr. H enrolled in the Summer Reading Program at the library he got to choose a free book. Yay! Free books!
Anyway, this is the book we chose. Its by a Maine author and about Maine, so we love to shout out the names of our towns when the moose and his friend visit them. This is an adorable book with amazing art. Kids will love it!! Mr. H sure does. 😊📖

My nephew asked for this one tonight. The moose does some silly and funny this. He was giggling at this one. Short and cute. Nice art.

I found this delightful rhyming story in a Bar Harbor gift shop. The illustrations are good, but it's the story that makes it so much fun. Highly recommended. We loved reading it aloud.

This is a must read with children before and/or during a trip to Maine (so I'm keeping it in mind to check out from the library again when we go there someday)

We loved the illustrations and rhymes. A very fun, cute story.

On a trip to Maine several years ago, we bought this book in Boothbay Harbor. After spending years on the shelf, I finally cracked this book open. The story is full of exciting adventures of a boy and moose who meet and become instant friends. The story is full of fast rhyming and hilarious encounters. I enjoyed how the book incorporated many Maine towns in the adventure. Dave O'Neill's illustrations are vibrant and exciting.
Although it is not one of my favorites, the book is a souvenir from a f
This is a fun story no matter where you live. This appears to be written for a market in Maine tourist shops, and would be an excellent purchase to take home to the grand kids, nieces or nephews. Don't miss the rest of our review. ...more

I actually picked this book up in a candy store in Maine that is famous for a 1700 pound chocolate moose. A young boy is befriended by a moose and experiences all kinds of fun with him, not only in his home, but also in the town and other towns of Maine. A fun rhyming book that will certainly have kids laughing.

With a fast paced rhyme and a multitude of Maine references, how can you go wrong? There's something joyful about racing through the story of the boy and the moose and their wild day out. A definite recommend for New Englanders and any fans of moose.

It is honestly just fun to say moose a lot. Try it.

Recommended to Robert by: Aunt Kitty
Aunt Kitty purchased this for Beetle. It is autographed by the author. This is somewhat reminiscent of Bob and Jack. It's a fun tale of the day a boy spent with a moose who just appears in his life. The boy decides to do all sorts of things a moose never gets to do as they jet-set around Maine.

Fun little book.

Its a Dr. Seuss-ish rhyming story about a boy who meets a moose. They go on an adventure in town. Its gives points of references of real towns in Maine, which you can appreciate if youve been to the state.

Super cute! Amazing illustrations!

This book was written as poetry. Has great rhyme schemes and tells the story of a boy who meets and befriends a moose. They travel all over the state and meet different animals and visit different towns and cities in Maine.

My wife read this to me on our Honeymoon. We brought it for the kids, but I enjoyed my wife reading it to me as we drove back to our little room in Rangeley, Maine

A humorous story about a boy who met a moose. The two go on numerous adventures each one just as fun as the last. The author uses rhyming to help the story flow and add more humor. This would fun book for younger and older children.

This book is an animated fantasy that teaches readers about the state of Maine. I would read this book in grades K and up when teaching them about the state of Maine. This book would teach them a little bit about Maine while also engaging them in a fictional story. This book does not include the issue of equity but could include the issue of diversity if the teacher was reading this book to students who did not live in Maine and to teach them about a new place.
