Moose cannot wait for his turn during the Alphabet Photo-shoot to take center stage. As each letter, A, B, C, D, parades by, Moose can barely contain his excitement. But when the alphabet rolls on to M, Moose finds himself passed over for ‘Mouse’. His fury unleashed, Moose begins disrupting many other letters’ photo-shoots, in this hilarious, new alphabet book. Paul Zelinsky’s detailed illustrations ask to be pored over, only eliciting more laughs.
