Although he lives in the wild, this timid, wide-eyed moose is anything but. While his friends go puddle jumping in the rain, he cowers under an umbrella, and he looks on shivering when others go skiing: "Not this moose. Too cold." Sensing he's "missing out on something," the moose decides to "take life by the antlers" and sets sail in a boat that breaks apart in a storm. Stranded on a remote island, he not only summons survival skills-foraging for food, building shelter and a fire-but happily swims and surfs with a new tortoise pal.

I like this book because i was once like the moose. I also like this book because in some of it there is friendship.

Ms. K's class liked when the moose went cliff jumping with his friends Beaver and Bear. We like when the Moose meets Tuesday because his name is funny and because they play volleyball together and roast coconuts together.
The main life lesson in this book is that you should stay active so you will be healthy. Don't waste your life. You should make the most of your life. The moose made the most of his life by making new friends, surfing the waves, roasting coconuts, and jumping off cliffs.
Ms. Harbin's class liked when the moose went ski diving. We like when the moose started meditating. We like when the moose and turtle were roasting coconuts. We like when the moose met the turtle Tuesday.

This is a serious picture book, best for older children and adults who love picture books. Moose is depressed, overly cautious, mild-mannered and searching for meaning in his life. He finds joy in life while stranded on a deserted island with only a tortoise named Tuesday for company.

I didn't pay attention to Moose until reading children's book. This is very cute picture but very cruel but realistic story. Nicolas Oldland is one of the best Canadian Artists, for sure!

Moose takes the first step outside of his comfort zone and I love that not everything goes perfectly. Storms happen!
