Caldecott Medalist Paul O. Zelinsky illustrates Kelly Bingham's outrageously funny, critically acclaimed, and boundary-breaking story about a moose, a zebra, and the alphabet! Zebra wants to put on a show as simple as ABC, but Zebra's friend Moose has other (unexpected and hilarious) ideas!

Zebra thinks the alphabet should be simple. A is for Apple. B is for Ball. Easy! But his friend Moose is too excited to wait his turn, and when M isn't for Moose (Mouse gets the honor), the rest of the letters better run for cover. Exuberant and zany storytelling brings to life two friends and one laugh-out-loud comedy of errors that's about friendship, sharing, and compromise. The incomparable Paul O. Zelinsky's artwork is bursting at the seams—literally—with child appeal. Breaking the borders of the page, and creating the art both digitally and traditionally, Zelinsky turns convention on its head. The result is a picture book that is innovative, hilarious, and begging to be read over and over again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Your Typical ABCs! Z is for Moose is not your typical ABC book. Yes, each letter has its own page and its own animal, but Moose cannot wait for his turn, no matter how patient Zebra asks him to be! The ABCs get a little mixed up when Moose is not chosen to represent his letter this time. All of a sudden, it Moose’s turn on every page! What will Zebra do to fix the mess his friend is making? Filled with the delightful drawings of Paul O. Zelinsky, this picture book not only teaches the ABCs, but also the importance of friendship and sharing. A great read for family time together.
