Mother Moose Tales, The creation myth of Mother Moose The Big Bad Pig Rumbleshirtskin Handsome and Gristle All of those and more are served up here in the voice of Maynard Moose, the alter-ego of storyteller Willy Claflin. Willy launches first into a cautionary tale, Maynard's not-so-traditional version of the Big Bad Pig, in which the innocent little wolves set out to seek their fortune only to be attacked by—you guessed it—Big Bad Pig. And that's just the beginning. As Maynard reminds us, traditional Mother Moose tales serve to preserve traditional Moose values. If you've ever been in stitches over a creative retelling of a classic story, these Mother Moose stories may threaten to pull the stitches out. They certainly pull all the stops.

About the Author:

A native of Maine now living in the Bay Area of California, Willy Claflin tours the USA each year, bringing his talents as a singer-songwriter and storyteller to school groups, family audiences, and education professionals. His other recordings, including SLEEPING BEASTLY and THE UGLIFIED DUCKY are featured at

From AudioFile:

These stories, described as "fractured fairy tales," include "Cinderella and the Three Bears," "Handsome and Gristle," and "Rumbleshirtskin," among others. Such titles accurately suggest the liberties that Claflin takes while telling his "Mother Moose tales" in the voice of his moose puppet. You should also know that Claflin sounds like Bullwinkle with a lisp and that he makes up words like "uglified" and fools with grammar, especially pronouns ("her was so mad"). Also, the production is taped with a live audience of maybe five or six chortling, laughing, and clapping adults who appear to be his friends. Though the packaging boasts that it is an "excellent choice for car trips," not all adults will agree. That said, some young children may fall in love with all the silliness and want to hear Claflin's CD over and over in order to perfect their Maynard Moose imitations.
