Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3–In this second easy chapter book starring Moose and his pig friend, Moose is thrilled when he discovers his own new Moose Crossing sign by the side of the road. He is strutting back and forth and striking poses when Hildy arrives to ask him to go swimming. He declines, saying that he has to stay to watch over his sign and wait for his adoring fans. Angry that he does not realize that the sign is for all of the moose in the area, the pig storms away. When people arrive, Moose is ready to give free autographs, but they have other ideas. With screams that the animal might charge, babies wailing, and flashbulbs going off in all directions, he runs back to safety. A prisoner in his home for days as more and more fans stop by, Moose hopes everyone will leave. After he calls a truce with Hildy, she gives him a great idea that will send his fans away for good. Mathieus black-and-white cartoon illustrations follow the humor of the text perfectly. Children will take pleasure in watching Moose realize that being famous is not as much fun as he thought.–Kristine M. Casper, Huntington Public Library, NY

One day, Moose looks out the window to see that some workers are placing a sign on the road. "Moose Crossing" it says. Since he is the only moose around, Moose knows the sign is just for him. Soon, his adoring fans show up, just like he'd imagined. Ok, maybe not quite like he'd imagined. In fact, they're loud, rude, and don't appreciate a moose too much. Now it's up to moose to figure out a way to make them all go away...

This lovely little chapter book is sure to elicit chuckles from young readers and their parents. It humorously explains the perils of seeking fame, and requires moose to use his noggin (and, highly conscientious parents be warned, a bit of trickery) to put things back to normal. Some of the language is clever enough for adults to relish, though like most good "childrens" movies nowadays, it might go over young readers' heads. The illustrator couldn't have made Moose look less appealing, but that is part of the book's charm as well.

This book makes me want to read other "Moose and Hildy" stories.

This was my first Moose and Hildy story, but now I'm looking forward to reading the others in the series. In the story, Moose becomes infatuated with himself after a "MOOSE CROSSING" sign is put up on the road near his home. Filled with his newfound self-importance, he argues with Hildy, his best friend, who's a pig. But when Moose finds out the life of a celebrity isn't exactly what he expected, all he wants is to get rid of the swarm of tourists who've come to see him, and go swimming with Hildy. In desperation, Moose comes up with a clever idea that may save the day.

The humorous story and its simple vocabulary are perfect for young readers, who will also enjoy the black and white illustrations. Moose's predicament adds a nice element of suspense that will hold kids' attention to the end of the story.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My wife and I just got back from Vermont where we saw tons of Moose crossing signs, which is why I got this book. I thought it would be funny and it is a cute story. It's about a moose that becomes a little conceited and becomes a prisoner in his own home. Through a number of humorous attempts to stop the people from hounding him he finally comes up with a great plan. It's a very short read, I read it in less then 10 minutes and the art work really is great. There are some words that I think would take some explaining to smaller children like "fedora" but overall it really seems like a good book. I'm giving it 4 out of 5 stars. I see you can actually buy this on Kindle, I would recommend you not do that. You want to get the full artwork to really make the story, reading it on a kindle would be very disappointing.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
A child living in Moose Country would perhaps enjoy this book most, but the fact is, the story filled with puns and double entendre provides a delight no matter where you live.

We have here, as main character, a Moose with a swelled head, enlarged by the notion that the Moose Crossing sign posted near his home specifically refers to him, rather than a generic sort of moose. (It reminds me of an old favorite of our kids, Mucky Moose, albeit a much clumsier book about a moose, and for a much younger set, but still delightful in its own way.)

So assuming, that the sign is about HIM, Moose insults his best friend and discards her, fast accumulating a host of admirers, or so he thinks.

Swiftly, however, the crowd invades upon his space, complete with candy wrappers, hot dog stands, tents, an excessive number of cars, and cameras, too many cameras, and noise.

Moose, realizing that he has developed his own predicament, also engineers his exit from this disastrous situation, all with charm and penache.

This book is a total delight, whether the reader is six or 66.

Especially if you know a child in Moose Country, get a copy. But get one, even for the kid living elsewhere.

This chapter book of 56 pages shows two friends working out their differences. Moose and Hildy see things differently as Moose goes through some changes as a result of seeing a new sign. I see this story being used in the classroom as a way to introduce figurative language and common expressions. For instance, Hildy and Moose have a "falling out"; Moose has a "swelled head"; Moose learns that "the pen is mightier than the sword". Similes also are part of this humorous story: "flashbulbs started popping like it was the Fourth of July." Children will enjoy reading (or listening to) this chapter book. Teachers can use it as a springboard to language arts activities; teachers/parents can use the story to illustrate friendship qualities and problem solving.

Here is another story about Moose and Hildy and their adventures. Moose gets a sign by his house saying Moose Crossing and thinks it's the best thing in the world but little does he realize that one should be careful of what they wish for as they just might get it. The area is suddenly filled with Moose fans and poor Moose just wants everyone to go home and it takes some help from Hildy to finally get things on track and Moose happyly alone again.

Great story line for the young early readers and nice illustrations. Great gift idea.
