Wait...no, that's not right. But Moose really, really wants to be included in this alphabet book. He keeps popping up, asking if it's his turn yet. (It's not.) And Zebra, who's running the show, is getting annoyed. And when "M" turns out to be for "mouse"...Moose goes on a little bit of a rampage. But by the end of the story, Zebra smooths everything over.
My five-year-old thought this story was hilarious.The second half is pretty funny, with Moose scratching out words and drawing moose antlers on everything. This one's probably best for kids who already know their alphabet sounds.
