Root’s jaunty wordplay and Cecil’s textured, hide-and-seek illustrations make this an engaging romp that will be fun to share with one child or many.
With an infectious assertion—"We've never, ever, ever, ever, ever seen a moose. And we really, really, really, really want to see a moose"—four children go in search of the elusive beast...Children should enjoy seeing the diminutive cast confidently scrambling over hill and dale, and sharp-eyed readers will get a kick out of spotting various clues (e.g., skinny tree trunks with hooves) that the moose have actually been following the party all along.
Inventive and appealing illustrations depict these four multiracial moose hunters as they intently search, and the buoyant, rhymed text makes for a stellar read-aloud. An excellent addition to any collection.
