KIRKUS REVIEW

When the “Moose Crossing” sign is posted, Moose learns that fame is not only fleeting, but it’s downright annoying. At first, he is so taken by the sign that he’s unable to leave the area, so excited is he by his self-importance. Even his best friend Hildy the Pig has trouble putting up with Moose’s arrogant proclamations: “Fine. You shouldn’t go swimming anyway. With a head as fat as yours, you’d probably sink.” Moose greets his human guests warmly, offering autographs and photographs, but is soon shocked by the sheer number of visitors. Soon, he’s a prisoner of his own fame, and he and Hildy have to make up and do some quick thinking. Though the accompanying pencil sketches are humorous, the story loses steam halfway through, making this middling fare for new readers. (Fiction. 6-9)
