What use is a moose? A young girl and her family find out

Molly loves moose, not the dessert, the animal. Imagine her surprise when on a family trip to Alaska she can't find any because they've all gone on vacation, to her home city! When Molly returns, she befriends a forlorn moose threesome exhausted from their urban adventures and she and her parents take the moose in.
Once rested, the moose prove to be invaluable: using their antlers as drying racks, pasta servers, clotheslines, and much more. Eventually the call of the wild summons them back to their real home. Will the domestic dynamos ever return? Or will Molly be mooseless?
Exciting newcomer Fiona Robinson brings a terrific sense of humor and great imagination to this perfect story-hour book, with lots of funny visual jokes.
