Morris the Moose

Written by Bernard Wiseman • Illustrated by Bernard Wiseman

Reviewed by Marcos M. (age 9)

Morris told the cow she has four legs and one tail so she must be a moose. The cow told Morris she?s not a moose ? she is a cow. But Morris did not listen. So they went to ask a deer and the deer said they had four legs and a tail and things on their heads so they must be deer. And the moose yelled that the cow is a moose. The deer laughed at them. Then they asked a horse about what they were. And then they went to drink water from a cool, blue stream and they found a surprise. You?ll have to read the book to find out the surprise!

I like the book because it is funny. The moose was very confused. He was silly. The deer was silly too. The horse was my favorite character because I like horses. The illustrations are good because they help to tell the story. This book reminded me of when I try to tell the truth and nobody listens like the moose did not listen to the cow. When that happens I get angry like the cow got angry with the moose and the deer and the horse.

I think other people should read this book. I recommend it to my friends because I think they will like it. I also recommend book to people who like animals.
