This is a Moose

ThisIsAMooseBy Richard T. Morris, illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld

published 2014 by Little, Brown and Company

This book has been out in the wild for a couple days now, and let me be the first to tell you to be sure to check the endpapers. Know a movie buff? A cinematographer? A dud with a digital camera? A moose with a dream? Do you have something important to say? Or do you just need a good laugh?

Well. Scoot over and share the lens with this crew.

From the publisher:

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.

breakerI’m so honored to have an exclusive look at this cast of characters. And since they are straight off the set of the most spectacular documentary ever created, this is a real treat.
