The Moose


Z IS FOR MOOSE:   Caldecott Medalist Paul O. Zelinsky illustrates Kelly Bingham's outrageously funny, critically acclaimed, and boundary-breaking story about a moose, a zebra, and the alphabet! Zebra wants to put on a show as simple as ABC, but Zebra's friend Moose has other (unexpected and hilarious) ideas!


CIRCLE, SQUARE, MOOSE:  Moose infiltrates a book about shapes and it is up to Zebra to restore order and save the day. Themes of friendship, exploration, and conflict resolution—and of course the concept of shapes--make this an ideal read-aloud for the elementary school classroom and for home!

WATCH MOOSE COME ALIVE!  The amazing Paul O. Zelinsky has created a book trailer for Z IS FOR MOOSE!  Let Zebra tell you all about his book in this funny animated gem: 





And here is the trailer for Circle, Square, Moose starring Judy Blume, Brian Floca, Melissa Sweet, and many of your favorite illustrators and authors!
