Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-A narrator whose identity is not revealed until story's end describes a none-too-clean house and yard, and is puzzled by the vast number of moose tracks covering almost every surface. Other messes are easy to attribute to various visitors. A bear left hair on the lawn chair, a chipmunk scattered shells on the counter, and a beaver sprayed wood chips from the bedpost all over the guest room after a midnight snack. The moose prints remain a mystery until the final spread reveals who the culprit is. Wilson's rhyming text will keep youngsters laughing at the animal friends and their antics. Davis's goggle-eyed cartoon style adds fun to the tale, highlighting the house's eclectic appearance, cozy untidiness, and the noise and energy of its inhabitants. The creatures are packed with personality: a ram wears tortoiseshell glasses and a polka-dot bow tie, a goose with a pearl necklace delicately sips tea, and a smiling mouse maid scurries around trying to keep up with the clutter. An enjoyable choice for storytime, this book will hold children's interest right up to the amusing-and appropriately predictable-ending.-Susan E. Murray, Glendale Public Library, AZ

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 2. Who left the moose tracks all around the house? The narrator-home owner is determined to find out in this humorous, rhyming, animal-character mystery. The home owner remembers and can trace his other visitors. The hair on the chair came from a bear, the nutshells on the counter were left by a visiting chipmunk, and the feathers on the carpet fell from a goose during a lively rendition of the Hokey Pokey--"But who left all these moose tracks?" It may take a moment to realize what animal is narrating the story, but, ultimately, kids will get the joke--though the home owner remains baffled. Viewers will like the witty, colorful art, with its expressive cartoonlike animal character, riotously engaged in familiar activities. Kids will also appreciate the bouncing who-left-the-moose-tracksrefrain, which deepens both the mystery and the anticipation. Shelle Rosenfeld

Like all of Wilson's other books, this is a fantastic and fun story told in perfect rhyme and illustrated beautifuly. What's especially good about this book is the surprise ending as well as the humorously detailed illustrations on each page. It's the detail that makes this book a fun one for mom and to read over and over again, just the way children like!

This is one of my faves for preschool storytime.

The pictures are fun, the rhymes are natural and the surprise ending is a hoot.

Karma Wilson is a great author for those squirmy 3 year olds, but her books appeal to older preschool and primary grade children, too.

My 5 and 6 year old kindergarteners love all of the Bear books (Bear Snores On....) and they were so excited when this new book arrived. They really had fun listening to the fun rhymes about all of the visitors who left behind various messes and quickly joined in to the repeating question - "who made all these moose tracks?" They especially love the surprise at the end!!!

Karma Wilson has turned out nothing but great children's books for some time now. Jack E. Davis is not only a skilled artist, but a very funny one also. This combination has created another winner here that delights both children and adults. This one is a great one on one read as well as a wonderful group read.

The unknown teller of this story begins the book...

"There are moose tracks on my back porch.
I'm not sure how they got there.
One thing I'm fairly certain of -
last night those tracks were NOT there.

There is bear hair on my lawn chair,
but a bear came by to eat.
When we barbecued our supper,
he shed hair there on his seat.

Bear hair, I remember.
But who left all those moose tracks?

The story goes one, from room to room; kitchen, the kitchen counter, den floor, the carpet, the bathroom, the bathtub, bedroom....and on and on. There are moose tracks everywhere? Not a clue does our voice tell us as to where they came from or how the got there.

This is a funny story and is inhabited by a plethora of creatures; birds, frogs, cats, dogs, raccoons, hippos, mice, pigs, goats, and more; all silly looking creatures doing rather silly things. The antics of these animals and their dress bring out many giggles from the children as they go through this one page after page. The reader is given a visual treat, a wonderfully written little rhyme and a mystery to solve...throw that in with a surprise ending and you have a great children's book. These are very busy, detailed and colorful paintings.

There is absolutely nothing about this read I do not like and I have yet to run into a little one that did not like it either.

I'm pretty busy, don't take much time to do reviews -- but had to say that my whole family LOVES this book! It is one of those we can read over and over. The kids love the pictures, and see something new each time we read it, it seems. I agree that this would be a great gift for girl or boy, at least in the range of 2-7 years old, since that is the range of my three. :) Going to find some other Karma Wilson books now!

Every time we went to the library, my son had to check out this book. He would have a melt-down if it was not available. I bought the book so we would always have it at home. He still loves after a few years. The pictures are very cute and the story is wonderful.

A great book enjoyed by my 4,5 and 7 year old. Terrific pictures with lots of detail for young non-readers to enjoy. Superb writing that is classic Karma Wilson. A great gift for any child -- boy or girl.

This book is a great read for children who are beginning readers. The illustrations fill up the entire page an are vibrant and expressive. The clever rhyme of the words make it fun for students to read and listen to. All the characters have interesting personalities that shine with the illustrations of their clothing and accessories. The surprise ending will have the children roaring with laughter and surprise.
