Today we read the story If You Give a Moose a Muffin. If you give a moose a muffin, he’ll want some jam to go with it.” So begins the most logical silliness to be found anywhere–at least since Laura Joffe Numeroff and illustrator Felicia Bond’s If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. Readers will follow a young boy and his voracious visitor through a series of antlered antics: jam reveries and puppet shows and big messes. It all makes perfect sense, really, once you stop to think about it. What moose wouldn’t want to borrow a sweater when it’s cold outside? And why shouldn’t the loose button on the sweater remind him of his grandmother?
