KIRKUS REVIEW

A trio of rowdy moose gives an only child a taste of what living with sibs might be like in this droll import. One snowy day, Bridget invites the three moose she finds sitting on her doorstep to enter—only to see them behave like the worst sort of pests: breaking her crayons, scattering toys, turning on the TV without permission, drinking from the toilet, taking over her bed, and carpeting her room with pellet-like poop. Lindenbaum depicts all the chaos in canted cartoons featuring an increasingly annoyed-looking child in bright turquoise overalls, chasing after a set of furry, blasé houseguests. Bridget does at last trick them into leaving, and concludes that the friends and cousins she already has are company enough. Fans of her previous encounters with sheep and wolves will be pleased to see her deal with this uproarious new challenge. (Picture book. 6-8)
