There are moose tracks on the back porch . . .
in the kitchen . . .
in the den . . .
There are moose tracks EVERYWHERE!
Who left all these moose tracks?
WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THIS BOOK : My sister likes moose tracks ice cream, but I much prefer THIS type of moose tracks. Young readers will not only enjoy the lovely, lyrical rhythm of this delightful story, children will also love the whimsical illustrations created by illustrator, Jack E Davis. This first person account of mysterious moose tracks left all around a house challenges young minds to eliminate various animal visitors until the very last page. Even the hilarious ending will amuse and possibly surprise those in search of who belongs to all those MOOSE TRACKS! A great addition to any library!
