Written in a similar style to the classic “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt,” children take off in search of a moose. Their search is complicated by the fact that they’ve “never, ever, ever seen a moose.” The children scrape through bushes, wade through swamps and scramble up hillsides as they try to find a moose. Readers will enjoy discovering the moose hidden in each picture when the children are actively searching for the moose. Careful examination of the oil illustrations will show moose feet, snouts, antlers and other parts hidden behind trees, bushes and rocks. The story is told in a sing-song manner, with some creative rhyming thrown in. Ideal for one on one sharing due to the hidden picture aspect of the story, it will appeal to readers aged three through six.
