Julia Eccleshare's Pick of the Month, April 2016 There is a lot to look for in this ebullient picture book with an excitable, fast-moving moose making its way through the different scenes. No sooner spotted than the moose is off. Travelling first to the city, can you find him in a fire station? A department store? A library? A swimming pool? A school? In illustrations that are reminders of both Where’s Wally? and Richard Scarry, the chaotic but endearing Moose leads readers on a merry journey of attractive and enjoyable animal scenes. Will Moose ever remain still? His final escape is delightful. ~ Julia Eccleshare
