From award-winning author Meg Rosoff comes this clever, laugh-out-loud picture book about a family's surprising newest member--a moose!

When he first arrives, everyone is expecting the usual kind of baby. But right away, his family notices there's something different about this one. Instead of two feet, he has four hooves. Instead of drinking milk, he eats twigs and weeds. Instead of a tiny human, they bring home a moose baby! With his long legs, silky ears, and sturdy antlers, the moose baby is admired everywhere he goes. Everyone wishes they had a moose baby too. But what will happen when he starts to outgrow their little home?

Here's a delightfully quirky and completely irresistible new sibling picture book about the true meaning of family and the power of love to transcend any difference.

About the author

Meg Rosoff

Meg was born in Boston, USA but now lives in Highbury, London with her husband, the painter Paul Hamlyn, and their daughter Gloria.

How I Live Now was Meg Rosoff's debut novel, which won the Guardian and Branford Boase Awards and was short-listed for the Orange Prize for New Fiction as well as the Whitbread. It garnered the sort of rave acclaim most writers only ever dream of. Mark Haddon, author of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, championed it right from the beginning, saying, 'That rare, rare thing, a first novel with a sustained, magical and utterly faultless voice. After five pages I knew that she could persuade me to believe almost anything.'

Since How I Live Now, Meg has gone on to write several award-winning books for teenagers including Just in Case, What I Was and The Bride's Farewell. She has also written Jumpy Jack and Googily, Meet Wild Boars and Wild Boars Cook for very young children and a special pocket money Puffin called Vamoose!
