From  jump-roping skunks to book-reading sharks, the animals in this girl’s make-believe zoo will do whatever she wants. Messing with nature is fun at first, until we see how hilariously wrong things go. Oinking otters! Picketing ground hogs! Stage-crashing pigs! What could be next? With deadpan text and eye-popping art, this raucous picture book builds gleefully to a riot of craziness that brings the whole fantasy tumbling down—in a comedic warning against imaginary menageries that kids will find hilarious.

Praise for A Moose That Says Moo

"This one is as much fun as it sounds, and it will find a regular spot in the storytime rotation." - Booklist  

"In this debut picture book, a little girl imagines a zoo with no cages and an assortment of uniquely talented animals." -- School Library Journal

*"Infectious good fun." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

 

JENNIFER HAMBURG: Two-time Emmy Award winner for Outstanding Writing in a Children's Series as a part of the writing team for BETWEEN THE LIONS

SUE TRUESDELL: Illustrator of 2009 Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book CHICKEN SAID, “CLUCK!” by Judyann Ackerman Grant

 

PRAISE FOR THE WORK OF SUE TRUESDELL

* “Amusing illustrations perfectly reflect the spirit of the story.”  —Starred Review / Kirkus Reviews (on CHICKEN SAID, “CLUCK!” by Judyann Ackerman Grant)

“Perfectly silly.”  —Kirkus Reviews (on THIS IS A HOSPITAL, NOT A ZOO by Roberta Karim)

“Splendidly doggish . . . Dog lovers of all ages will run in circles for this loving, funny celebration of the human-canine relationship.”  —AMAZON.COM (on HOW TO TALK TO A DOG by Jean Craighead George)

“Truesdell’s got a gift for casually cockeyed canines: there’s a Feifferesque touch to her scrawled lines, and her panoply of pooches are expressive in the extreme with their motion lines and flying ears (the collection on the endpapers will send dogophiles into sighs of yearning).”   —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (on HOW TO TALK TO A DOG by Jean Craighead George)
