The Moose and the Goose woohooo (and yes there is a train!)

-1  -1  -1  -1


I thought I would share this delightful new picture book with you. It has gorgeous illustrations by Jenny Cooper (oh I love that bear!) and sparkling words by Juliette MacIver.

This is the HILARIOUS story of a moose, a caboose, a goose, a bear and a train.

The story is glued together with sweet rhyme: goose, caboose, Ruth, juice, introduce, roof, hoof, toot, route, strewth, booth, produce, vamoose, uncouth, goof, excuse, youth, loose, footloose, mousse

If you read those words you might get a W H I F F  of the story.

This is a picture book, yes! But in my ear it makes poetry … so I do recommend you check it out.

If you like you could try writing a poem called The Moose and the Goose.
