"If you give a moose a muffin, he'll want some jam to go with it." So begins the most logical silliness to be found anywhere--at least since Laura Joffe Numeroff and illustrator Felicia Bond's If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. Readers will follow a young boy and his voracious visitor through a series of antlered antics: jam reveries and puppet shows and big messes. It all makes perfect sense, really, once you stop to think about it. What moose wouldn't want to borrow a sweater when it's cold outside? And why shouldn't the loose button on the sweater remind him of his grandmother? Bond's cleverly detailed, witty illustrations perfectly complement Numeroff's deadpan style. Through just a few deft words and brush strokes, the reader gets a real sense of the unique personalities of the two characters. Children will relate easily to the full-circle reasoning of the story, while picking up the concept of cause and effect. The moral of the story? Keep plenty of muffin mix and blackberry jam in your cupboard. You never know who may drop by. (Great read aloud, ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
From Publishers Weekly
In this sequel to If You Give a Mouse a Cookie , the complexities that can follow a simple act of kindness are played out with the same rampant silliness as in the previous book. The dilemma here is of a different dimension--a moose, after all, will almost always be a bigger problem than a mouse--but the collaborators maintain the same jolly mood. And what happens when you give a moose a muffin? He asks for jam, of course, and when he's finished eating all the muffins, he'll want you to make more. That entails a trip to the store. Of course the moose would like to go, but he may need to borrow a sweater; he might notice a button is loose, in which case he'll require a needle and thread. Numeroff and Bond have another clear winner--the drawings of the goofy moose sashaying around the house as his small host struggles to keep up with his demands make for great fun. Ages 3-7.

My daughter keeps using her socks as puppets. :D
This book explores the things that might happen if you give a Moose that muffin. Mostly silly and ridiculous which is the kind of book the kids I know love.
Some people seem to believe there is a moral to this story, but I am not sure what that moral might be. "Give an inch and they will take a mile?" Watch out if you give a begger a dollar? Those sound like warnings to me. Maybe it is best to share this adorable and wonderfully illustrated story without making it some kind of lesson.
The copy I received was a good clean copy. I have purchased used copies before and never received a copy before in such worn and dirty condition as this book I got.
Now I have to buy the series, because, well, I started a "if you give a..." storm.
I can only blame myself.
<3 these books!
Our book was delivered with some bent pages, but I have kids, so it is only a matter of time.
We would recommend this book to anyone who is wanting a fun story to read with the kids.
