Another 2018 picture book review by Jean Matthew Hall.
Hilarious! If the S in Moose Comes Loose written by Peter Hermann and illustrated by Matthew Cordell is stunningly hilarious. Judging from their short bios both the author and the illustrator are hilarious themselves. Go-figger!
Harper Collins Children published it in 2018.
I love picture books filled with wordplay but this one tops them all! It’s wordplay and letter play scrambled together.
Cow’s best friend MOOSE loses his S and his E falls off. Cow is distraught without her best friend. So, she launches a plan to GLUE the letters back into place. But she’s out of GLUE and winds her way through a complicated scheme to borrow the letters G-L-U-E.
Of course, each time she borrows a letter the friend she borrows from changes into something else entirely.
Kids will love this book as they unknowingly spell their way through all sorts of one-syllable words.
Whatever kind of school your children are enrolled in they MUST read If the S in Moose Comes Loose aloud!
Here’s an interview with the author.
