About the Book

In this companion to the acclaimed Z Is for Moose, Moose infiltrates a book about shapes (because he loves shapes, naturally) and it is up to his best friend, Zebra, to restore order and save the day. Another triumph from the award-winning team of Kelly Bingham and Paul O. Zelinsky.

This hilarious book manages to illustrate a fact or two about shapes while providing a three-dimensional stomping ground for best friends Moose and Zebra. What will happen? Who will save the day? It's all up in the air until the final page, where Moose and Zebra (and Cat, too) create a perfect—and perfectly heartwarming—ending. This stand-alone companion to Z Is for Moose features a multilayered story told through text, asides, conversation bubbles, and pictures. Themes of friendship, exploration, and conflict resolution—and of course the concept of shapes, including the shape of a book—make this an ideal read-aloud for the elementary school classroom and for home!

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“It is a great joy to watch Bingham and Zelinsky, who brilliantly collaborated on Z Is for Moose (2012), once more let Moose loose to naughtily and enthusiastically disrupt reading. . . . Hilarious fun.” - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“The stars of one of our Best Books of 2012, Z Is for Moose, are back for a fabulous encore about shapes. . . . Bingham and Zelinsky pace this rollicking adventure with clockwork precision, tucking in surprises but never losing sight of their focus: the friendship between Moose and Zebra.” - Shelf Awareness

“Irrepressible Moose is up to his old tricks, trying to force his way into another concept book. . . . Be prepared to share this book again and again.” - The Horn Book

“It’s clear that Moose is indeed . . . a star!” - Booklist

“Madcap chicanery . . . reaches a pitch of surreal delirium. . . . Adults . . . will find the anarchy refreshing; kids will recognize the mash-up world they were born into.” - New York Times Book Review
