The Lovereading4Kids comment

Brilliant fun in this alphabet book with a difference! Zebra is determined to get every letter of the alphabet matched to the right animal in the new A-Z he is creating. After all, it can’t be that hard, can it? All goes well except that moose is a little bit impatient! Barging in on E he scuffles with Elephant who wants none of him on his page and then tries to find himself a corner on H, I and J! Poor Moose! Luckily M is not far off now…Young readers will love the joke about the alphabet in this wonderful collection of illustrations which will make it forever memorable.


Z is for Moose by Kelly L. Bingham

Zebra is absolutely certain he'll be able to direct everyone to appear on the correct page, at the appropriate time, without any mishaps, unnecessary drama, or hurt feelings. It's an ABC book, for goodness' sake. How difficult can it be? Oh, dear. Zebra forgot about Moose.


Very special ... Zelinsky's comic illustrations offer children lots to notice, anticipate and giggle over in this hilarious book. -- Marilyn Brocklehurst Booksellers

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
