Description - The Moose is Loose! by Mark Carthew

A hilarious rhyming text in the style of Dr Seuss Ages 2-5

'the moose is loose and so is the goose!' When the animals on the Kalaboo Zoo train break free, it's up to driver Mac and signalman Bruce to get them back. But these animals are sneaky, slippery and sly ... Will Mac and Bruce find a way to get the rowdy crew back on board? Ages: 2-5 'this picture book brings together trains and animals - some of the things young children love. the rhyming text makes this a good story for reading aloud and the variety of animals is sure to delight children. the bold illustrations by Matt Stanton bring out the humour in the story, making this an enjoyable book to read with, or to, a child and an interesting book for a beginner reader to read alone.' -Magpies
