If the S in Moose Comes Loose
By

Rating
Spelling has never been so zany! When the S in MOOSE comes loose, Cow must find the missing letters and glue MOOSE back together! Perfect for fans of Michael Hall and Sandra Boynton. Rollicking, clever, and a great way to have fun with letters, If the S in Moose Comes Loose is a seriously wild ride from start to finish. When two of Moose's letters come loose, he vanishes. Poof! But his best friend, Cow, has an idea: she'll find a G, an L, a U, and an E and glue M-O-O-S-E back together, ever! But it's not as easy as it sounds.... Author Peter Hermann is not only a debut picture book author, he also plays publisher Charles Brooks on TV Land's hit show Younger. Matthew Cordell is the acclaimed author and illustrator of the 2018 Caldecott winner Wolf in the Snow and has written and/or illustrated dozens of other books for children. If the S in MOOSE comes loose and the E breaks free . . . what's left M-O-O!

About the Author

Matthew Cordell spilled a whole bottle of ink while drawing this book. Forgive him, white carpet is painfully boring. Matthew lives in the suburbs of Chicago with his wife, writer Julie Halpern, and their daughter, Romy. He is the author and illustrator of Trouble Gum and the illustrator of Toot Toot Zoom!, Mighty Casey, Righty and Lefty, and Toby and the Snowflakes, which was written by his wife.

Reviews

"Hermann's fast-paced romp will likely leave readers laughing and spelling along. Cordell's illustrations, rendered in pen and ink and watercolor, match the kinetic pace of the tale. His animals are loosely drawn and delightfully expressive." -- Kirkus Reviews "Little listeners and beginning readers alike will enjoy the rhyme and wordplay." -- Kirkus Reviews "Cordell (The Only Fish in the Sea) excels at drawing animals in the grip of powerful emotions, but always with the sense that they're fundamentally decent creatures. Hermann's verse never skips a beat, and the transformation of everyday objects into new things supplies a string of guffaws." -- Publishers Weekly "The premise recalls Escoffier's Where's the BabOOn? (BCCB 1/16), and Hermann brings an extra helping of high-energy silliness to Cow's pell-mell procession." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Cordell's line and watercolor art is zippy perfection, his familiar loose-limbed scribbles adding a sense of barely contained chaos as Cow bipedally scampers through the scenes." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "This is orthographical humor at its best, and it could inspire a freestanding swap-one-letter game once the book closes." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
