One of our Dyslexia Friendly Books of the Year 2013 - Interest Age Teen Reading Age 9

Award-winning Meg Rosoff is wickedly funny as well as deeply caring and empathetic in this intelligent and touching story about a teenager and her unusual baby. Being a teen mum brings opprobrium from all but when Jess gives birth to a baby moose, there are no holds barred to the advice and criticism she receives. Lightly but with very serious intent, Rosoff charts the pernicious ways in which society judges and rejects children who are born different. How Jess and her boyfriend Nick cope as outcasts is a triumph. It will spur all readers into thinking things differently.

Synopsis

Moose Baby by Meg Rosoff

Brilliantly funny teen drama from the consistently brilliant and Carnegie Medal winning author. A moving and hilarious take on relationships and motherhood, with a very powerful message.

Will it be a boy or a girl? Nothing can prepare Jess and Nick for when Jess gives birth to their first - moose. Four legs won't fit into a romper suit and what will grandma say? But there has been a spate of Non-Homo-Sapien births round the country and everyone else is coping, disembowelled labradors apart. The trials of being a parent!

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyselxic readers of 12+
