MAX, THE MAGICAL MOOSE

2009 Abernathy House Publishing
$7.95, ages 2-7.
Max is a special magical moose, but only uses his talents to help others. He helps a beached whale, repairs a beaver's dam, fixes the broken wing on a bird, and mends a broken light house beacon to help sailors find their way safely. The soothing rhyme and brilliant illustrations are sure to delight young readers.
