In an effort to expose the boys to the state of my birth I welcome most things Maine related. In fact the other day LTD was preparing for his field trip to a farm and informed me that since he was going to a farm he needed to wear his moose socks. Islandport Press joined in LTD’s yankee education by releasing There are NO MOOSE on this Island written by Stephanie Calmenson with art by Jennifer Thermes. The tale centers on Jake and his father’s trip to an island. Jakes’ dad tells that they will be able to see all sorts of cool animals, but Jake really wants to see a Moose. Of course as the title explains the island comes sans moose. However, and I don’t want to spoil the ending, the title may be a bit misleading. The story uses fun rhymes as Jake discovers island life while slightly implying the dad has a problem with his senses. The last pages are devoted to facts about moose, but didn’t really dive into why LTD thought his moose socks would be perfect for a farm visit.
