Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

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.

Review

"In the grand tradition of the Cat in the Hat and Pinkwater's absurd marauding animals...This will make other 'lonely onlies' feel a bit better about their state, while kids with mooselike siblings will enjoy telling their own stories of wild behavior." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Fans of [Bridget's] previous encounters with sheep and wolves will be pleased to see her deal with this uproarious new challenge." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Kids will giggle their way through." -- School Library Journal

Format: Hardcover
This book gives Daniel Pinkwater's polar bears, (Irving and Muktuk: Two Bad Bears, Bad Bears in the Big City: An Irving & Muktuk Story), a run for their money.

Bridget would like to have a sibling - brother or sister, older or younger - no matter. When she finds the three Moose Brothers hanging out in front of her building she invites them home to let them audition as fill-in siblings. It does not go well.

The entire book works. The color wash suits the drawing style which complements the story which is carried by mild misbehavior and mayhem. The narrative is just deadpan enough to highlight the moose shenanigans, and Bridget's attempts to cope with these unruly guests actually hint in an exaggerated way at what real siblings might be like. The book is fun; it's funny; it makes a delightful treat. Very nice for a little reader with a taste for unruly humor.
