Book Overview

Caldecott Medalist Paul O. Zelinsky illustrates Kelly Bingham's outrageously funny, critically acclaimed, and boundary-breaking story about a moose, a zebra, and the alphabet Zebra wants to put on a show as simple as ABC, but Zebra's friend Moose has other (unexpected and hilarious) ideas

Zebra thinks the alphabet should be simple. A is for Apple. B is for Ball. Easy But his friend Moose is too excited to wait his turn, and when M isn't for Moose (Mouse gets the honor), the rest of the letters better run for cover.

Exuberant and zany storytelling brings to life two friends and one laugh-out-loud comedy of errors that's about friendship, sharing, and compromise.

The incomparable Paul O. Zelinsky's artwork is bursting at the seams--literally--with child appeal. Breaking the borders of the page, and creating the art both digitally and traditionally, Zelinsky turns convention on its head. The result is a picture book that is innovative, hilarious, and begging to be read over and over again.

Z Is for Moose will bring laughter and fun to every story time and alphabet lesson, whether in school or at home.

Named a Notable Book for Children by the American Library Association

Even my not-quite three-year-old grandson appreciates the humor in this wise alphabet story. Sometimes you have to search exactly where the letter is on the page or what the letter stands for. The antics of the moose are pretty funny, especially when he learns that M is for mouse, not moose. But the Zebra, who seems to be a little needy and unfeeling at first, saves the day with his diplomatic solution for the little moose. This is one of the few non-board books I have for my grandson at my house, and the pages have held well.
   Hilarious -- can spark discussion on taking turns/being patient
This is a humorous book that I use with my students in my read-alouds again. The one thing I have a problem with is that the moose has a tantrum and is treated as something funny. On the other hand, it can spark discussion about what a person can do if they get mad, frustrated, or feel left out.
   The kids LOVE the book
The children LOVE the book.
   New twist on the Alphabet.
Just when you thought there was no new way to display the alphabet along comes Z Is for Moose.
   and great for talking about feelings
This is really cute and great for talking about feelings! My daughter loved it, but I've heard some children learning the alphabet just find the playfulness with words, letters and characters confusing.
   Instant Classic!
Who would have thought that an ABC book could be funny? Well, this is one. Take this romp through the alphabet with magnificent moose and zealous zebra and enjoy the adventure with someone you love.
   Great book but ripped cover :(
I love this book, it is so cute! My book cover was, however, opened when I ripped the box set! Very disappointed '' about that.
   I bought 3 copies of this!
Never thought about those objects that do not make it into the usual ABC books-the disappointed moose when the mouse is chosen to represent the letter M! I have given it only 5 stars because some of the pictures are confusing. For example, it is hard to see the duck for the letter D, which is pushed by the moose off the stage. A child would not understand what is happening here. As well, true is also for some other entries. But on the whole, an engaging and provocative book.
I bought this book after reading it in my sister's house ; it is one of those books that is just as funny for the adult if not more! I would put it on the same level as the books Don 't Let the Pigeon ''.
   Acceptable not goid
Although the outside of the book was in good condition, there was a torn page in the middle that was taped haphazardly. I consider this acceptable and not good ''. Will keep and repair, but would not have known if I had purchased.
