Description from Publisher: Everyone Needs At Least One More Moose
When Martha decided she must have a pet,
she marveled and mulled over what she should get.
But much of the choices made Martha quite glum…
instead of magnificent, most were humdrum.
And just as it seemed like it might be no use…
she made up her mind that she must have one...

When Martha gets an unusual pet, she's delighted by all of the fun things they do together. If one moose is this marvelous, then more moose must be even better! Pretty soon, Martha has more moose than she can handle in this playful pet story.

My Rating:
I received a digital ARC from the publisher through NetGalley.com for an honest, unbiased review. My opinion is my own.

This was a very cute story that my son (3.5) aND I both enjoyed. It was marvelous. ;)

The illustrations were quirky and fun, and had plenty of color, which is something that I rather like in a children's book.

The use of M-words was actually a pleasant surprise and it was very well done. As were the rhymes and rhythm of the text. I also couldn't help but appreciate the subtle teaching of moose singular and moose plural.

The story itself was both sweet and silly, blended expertly!
