From the creator of Big Bear Hug comes the comic-adventure story of a mild-mannered moose who learns how to take life by the antlers. This moose may live in the wild, but he doesn't act it --- he watches from the sidelines as his friends have fun. Every now and then, he wonders if he's missing out on anything. When the moose finally takes a chance and goes on a solo sailing trip, a raging storm carries him far from everything he knows. Will he curl up in a ball and cry, or make the most of it? The moose's unlikely hero-journey is a lighthearted, contemporary fable that celebrates living life to the fullest.

display_description Although he lives in the wild, this timid, wide-eyed moose is anything but. While his friends go puddle jumping in the rain, he cowers under an umbrella, and he looks on shivering when others go skiing: "Not this moose. Too cold." Sensing he's "missing out on something," the moose decides to "take life by the antlers" and sets sail in a boat that breaks apart in a storm. Stranded on a remote island, he not only summons survival skills-foraging for food, building shelter and a fire-but happily swims and surfs with a new tortoise pal.
