Zebra is absolutely certain he’ll be able to direct everyone to appear on the correct page, at the appropriate time, without any mishaps, unnecessary drama, or hurt feelings. It’s the ABCs, for goodness’ sake. How difficult can it be? Oh, dear. Zebra forgot about moose.
When I first saw this book, I thought "ohhh, another alphabet book." You can't hear it, but I thought that in the most monotone mental voice ever. Really - there just haven't been many exciting alphabet books to come out lately. What can you do with the ABCs?!?! Well, Kelly Bingham and Paul Zelinsky have come up with a fresh idea!
The book starts normal enough: A is for Apple, B is for Ball, C is for Cat, and then moose enters the picture. He's impatiently waiting for his turn to come in the alphabet, so ends up on most every other letter's page; and THEN he discovers M is for MOUSE!!! Oh no...
If you have a preschooler just learning their letters, or even a school age child looking for some fun, check out this new take on an ABC book. Moose is a hoot and will have everyone laughing - and yes, there is even a good ending.
