This is a Moose by Richard T. Morris


This is a Moose by Richard T. Morris

Light! Camera! Moose! Moose? Yes, moose! When a movie director tries to capture the life of a moose on film, he's in for a big surprise. It turns out the moose has a dream bigger than just being a moose - and his friends are going to make that dream come true. In this hilarious romp, Richard T. Morris and bestselling illlustrator Tom Lichtenheld remind us to dream big and, when we do, to aim for the moon.


Clever dialogue and illustrations entertain and could also be used for discussion or writing about what students think they are expected to be and what they desire. Library Media Connection
