From Library Staff

Z is for Zany when overly enthusiastic Moose hijacks the alphabet despite Zebra’s best laid plans.

Hilarious and sweet story about disappointment, friendship, and the alphabet.

Nobody wants to be left out – especially the big brown moose who is so enthusiastic about being included in an alphabet that he can’t wait his turn. Before the letter “M” is reached, Moose tries to push aside Duck at “D” and Elephant at “E”, replace the hat at “H” and butt into the ice cream at “I”.

Zebra, sporting a black-striped shirt as the referee, is having none of it. “No. Moose does not start with D, E, H or I! You are on the wrong page.”

Moose simply must wait for “M”.

However, at “M”, Zebra chooses Mouse instead of Moose. Moose is shattered and retreats offstage in tears.

As “X” and “Y” are reached, it appears that there’s nowhere at all in the alphabet for Moose. But wait!

At “Z”, Zebra has a wonderful, heart-warming surprise for Moose.

With Moose’s Bullwinkle-like face, his goofy antics and a just-right conclusion, Z is for Moose is a hilarious picture book with lots of action – a perfect choice for those who are learning or re-learning the alphabet - and for anyone who enjoys an amusing story.

My 3 year old loves this book so much we decided to buy it.

A hilarious twist on the typical alphabet book. Impatient Moose keeps butting into the alphabet before his turn.

Zebra: You can be in the book

Moose: I can't! It's too late! all that's left is Z.

When Moose realizes that he will not be used for the letter "M" in this Alphabet Book, he loses his temper. Luckily, a bit of humour, friendship, and an understanding Zebra save the day!
