ISBN: 9781771031004

Until he discovered a park pavilion, Moose never knew life beneath a roof. His friends Beaver, Bear and Squirrel, however, all seemed to be roof experts. Moose decides to put his antlers to good use. With his friends’ help, he soon has a permanent roof over his head. But it becomes more trouble than worth. Moose can’t lie down to sleep, can’t balance when he walks and can’t reach the tender weeds at the bottom of the pond. His friends can only offer advice from the life they know, which is no help at all to tired, cranky Moose.When a sudden storm blows his roof away, his aches and pains disappear. Moose gets a good night sleep and eats a wonderful weedy breakfast. He realizes the sky over his head is roof enough for him.


An endearing children’s story about a moose who longs for a roof to protect him fro the elements, Moose’s Roof, will bring a smile to your face and is enjoyable for kids and parents alike. I’ve enjoyed reading this story to my Little Worn Pages over the past few weeks and he gets so excited to read it every few nights. With bright, colourful illustrations and a sweet story, it’s the perfect Canadian children’s book to add to your collection. It also features a local provincial park that Newfoundlanders will recognize. It makes this story feel like a little piece of home, and it’ll certainly bring a smile to your face.

Happy reading!
