About this title


Moose misses his family-his aunties from Moosissippi, his cousins from Moosachusetts-the whole clan. But when everyone arrives at Moose Lodge, things don't go quite as Moose had planned. Alone with his sports equipment and long lists of coordinated activities, Moose despairs of ever being able to bring his family together. Just when he thinks it can't get any worse a swarm of moosekitos starts biting! Is it the end of a perfectly perfect vacation-or the beginning of a very moosey kind of togetherness? Margie Palatini has collaborated with Henry Cole on two other books featuring Moose and his family, Moosetache and Mooseltoe. Her other titles include Mary Had a Little Ham, Broom Mates, and The Web Files. Margie Palatini lives with her husband and son in New Jersey. Henry Cole has illustrated many picture books for children, including The Wright Brothers; Muldoon; and Warthogs Paint: A Messy Color Book, all by Pamela Duncan Edwards. He also illustrated Julie Andrews Edwards's Little Bo: The Story of Bonnie Boadicea and Little Bo in France. He lives in Washington, D.C.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3–The moose with the enormously long "moosetache" returns in another adventure. This time, he organizes a family reunion. Unfortunately, things don't go as planned. Although Moose wants everyone to spend time together, the extended family members quickly separate to enjoy different pursuits. Only the invasion of a swarm of "blasted buggy biters" can unite the kinfolk as they huddle together in a "moosekito" net woven out of Moose's "moosetache." Cole's bright, pencil-and-acrylic illustrations are busy and full of humor, with words often printed on top of the art. The characters' faces are expressive and packed with personality. Enlarged, colored text in different fonts emphasizes key words. The puns are fun for confident readers, and work well when read aloud. However, Palatini's tendency to use incomplete sentences ("Slid down dales. Snaked through tunnels. Crossed bridges. Rivers. This way. That way") is disconcerting for children who are just beginning to manage language for themselves. Irregular rhythm and occasional rhyme are the author's trademark style, and those who plan to read the book aloud may want to practice a few times. Beware, the repetition of moose puns may give tellers moosecular spasms.–Jane Barrer, Washington Square Village Creative Steps, New York City
