Mock Caldecott 2013 Club Day 7

It is 123, ABC day for Picture Book Month, so it's the perfect time to share this hilarious ABC book by Kelly Bingham and illustrated by Paul O. Zelinsky, Z is for Moose.

Z Is for Moose
Book Trailer:
  My fourth graders got a good laugh at the emotional moose and his impatience-turned-outrage when his moment on stage is usurped by a mouse.  Here were there comments today:

"I love the illustrations and how Moose pops up everywhere!"
"I liked the pie part and how Moose crossed out the words with crayon."
"I loved how the pictures showed Moose crossing out the other stuff and writing 'Moose' and giving the other pictures moose antlers."
"I love how the illustrator made the moose pop out onto the rim of the page when he was mad.  I also loved his expressions."
"Moose is immature!"
"This book is very cartoon-y, but is it just a little kid's book?  No!  It is really humorous.  It's entertaining to me, and I'm ten!"
