A Moose Goes a-Mummering
In this Newfoundland “Twelve Days of Christmas,” Chris Moose loves to go mummering.
But everyone, from 2 giggling geese to 12 blushing beavers, see through his festive costume. With bobbles, lights and garlands, Chris’ disguise grows more and more elaborate until he begins to wonder if he will ever find a way to keep his true identity from his friends!
“The bright cheerful illustrations help create a sense of playfulness and whimsy, and the story begs to be read aloud with its litany of falling, prancing and squelching critters who each find some new item to Chris’s costume. While youngsters will love the familiarity of the format, they will equally enjoy the new element that Chris Moose brings to this timeless classic.”
