I feel that I would be remiss in my duties as a book reviewer if I didn't include some children's books. True, they are juvenile, but that's the point - and quite frankly, we all need something simple to read. So, I decided the best way to start a kid's book review would be with the book "If You Give a Moose a Muffin" by Laura Numeroff. Here's the cute cover art:




This book, full of excellent illustrations by Felicia Bond, show us exactly what crazy turns of events can take place if you should EVER make a mistake so foolish as to offer a moose a muffin...(Trust me, don't do it - it's a REALLY bad idea!)

Favorite quote: "Then he'll ask you to help make the scenery. When the scenery is finished, he'll get behind the couch. But his antlers will stick out."

Final score: The illustrations are darling, the sort of stream of consciousness thoughts and requests of the moose are endearing and oddly quirky, and the book never ceases to loose its charm no matter how many times you read it - five out of five!
