Lights! Camera! Moose!
MOOSE? Yes, Moose! When a movie director tries to capture the life of a moose on film, he's in for a big surprise. It turns out the moose has a dream bigger then just being a moose--he wants to be an astronaut and go to the moon.
His forest friends step in to help him, and action ensues. Lots of action. Like a lacrosse-playing grandma, a gigantic slingshot into space, and a flying, superhero chipmunk.
In this hilarious romp, Richard T. Morris and bestselling illustrator Tom Lichtenheld remind us to dream big and, when we do, to aim for the moon.

About the Author

In researching this book, Richard T. Morris lived for two years among a herd of wild moose in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, where he survived on roots and- cut! Sorry. He made this whole story up. Richard is actually the author of Bye-Bye, Baby! (Walker/Bloomsbury, 2009). He is also a regular contributor to Ellen Potter and Anne Mazer's Spilling Ink creative writing blog. He lives in New Jersey with his family.

As a child, Tom Lichtenheld wanted to be a clown when he grew up. But when he found out that being a clown required riding around in a tiny car with a bunch of other clowns, he decided to become a children's book illustrator instead. Tom is the author and illustrator of What Are You So Grumpy About? and the illustrator of the New York Times bestselling book Shark vs. Train, which was a Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, School Library Journal, and Washington Post Best Children's Book of the Year. His other bestsellers include Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site, Exclamation Mark, and Duck! Rabbit! He lives in Illinois with his wife. He invites you to visit his website at

Sweet book! The pictures, narrator, & sound effects are hysterically good! Thrilled it was $1.99 in lieu of $9.99! :)

I got this book for my 6 year old grandson who loves many of the Read to Me books. I never did locate any "play" feature in this book, but that was not a real issue. What was troubling is a segment of the book where the author talks about what moose really do (instead of being astronauts)... like eat leaves, swim in the lake... and unnecessarily, in my opinion, a moose pooping in the woods, complete with sound effects. Six year old boys delight in potty humor, but it is something I am trying to discourage.
