Gr 1-3–In this second easy chapter book starring Moose and his pig friend, Moose is thrilled when he discovers his own new Moose Crossing sign by the side of the road. He is strutting back and forth and striking poses when Hildy arrives to ask him to go swimming. He declines, saying that he has to stay to watch over his sign and wait for his adoring fans. Angry that he does not realize that the sign is for all of the moose in the area, the pig storms away. When people arrive, Moose is ready to give free autographs, but they have other ideas. With screams that the animal might charge, babies wailing, and flashbulbs going off in all directions, he runs back to safety. A prisoner in his home for days as more and more fans stop by, Moose hopes everyone will leave. After he calls a truce with Hildy, she gives him a great idea that will send his fans away for good. Mathieus black-and-white cartoon illustrations follow the humor of the text perfectly. Children will take pleasure in watching Moose realize that being famous is not as much fun as he thought.–Kristine M. Casper, Huntington Public Library, NY
