PreSchool-Grade 1-Bridget, an only child, longs for a brother or sister. She goes out to play with her friend Nicky and his many siblings, but is soon overwhelmed by the number of children. She arrives home to find three moose sitting on the steps of her building. Naturally, she invites them in to be her brothers. Unfortunately, the animals don't know how to play Legos or draw, they throw her toy animals around, and they drink from the toilet. It's all too much for Bridget, and she is relieved when her guests finally leave. Lindenbaum's color-washed cartoons capture the wacky tone of the story and reflect the girl's emotions. As her calm life is torn upside-down by the moose, her pleasant pink bedroom turns a garish green. The text meanders considerably, and the first few pages make a confusing false start. Once the moose enter the scene, however, the pace picks up and kids will giggle their way through the rest of this slight tale.Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Maryland School for the Deaf, Columbia
