Spelling has never been so zany! When the S in MOOSE comes loose, Cow must find the missing letters and glue MOOSE back together! Perfect for fans of Michael Hall and Sandra Boynton.
Rollicking, clever, and a great way to have fun with letters, If the S in Moose Comes Loose is a seriously wild ride from start to finish.
When two of Moose’s letters come loose, he vanishes. Poof! But his best friend, Cow, has an idea: she’ll find a G, an L, a U, and an E and glue M-O-O-S-E back together, better than ever! But it’s not as easy as it sounds....

If the S in MOOSE comes loose
and the E breaks free . . . what’s left?
Peter Hermann is an actor and writer who has loved words that rhyme ever since he recited Shel Silverstein’s “If the World Was Crazy” in his fourth-grade poetry contest. When he’s not rhyming, he plays book publisher Charles Brooks on TV Land’s hit show Younger. He lives in New York with his wife and their three children.
Matthew Cordell is the acclaimed author and illustrator of the 2018 Caldecott winner Wolf in the Snow. He is also the author and illustrator of Trouble Gum and the illustrator of If the S in Moose Comes Loose, Toot Toot Zoom!, Mighty Casey, Righty and Lefty, and Toby and the Snowflakes, which was written by his wife. Matthew lives in the suburbs of Chicago with his wife, writer Julie Halpern, and their daughter, Romy.
“Little listeners and beginning readers alike will enjoy the rhyme and wordplay.”
“Cordell (The Only Fish in the Sea) excels at drawing animals in the grip of powerful emotions, but always with the sense that they’re fundamentally decent creatures. Hermann’s verse never skips a beat, and the transformation of everyday objects into new things supplies a string of guffaws.”
“The premise recalls Escoffier’s Where’s the BabOOn? (BCCB 1/16), and Hermann brings an extra helping of high-energy silliness to Cow’s pell-mell procession.”
“Cordell’s line and watercolor art is zippy perfection, his familiar loose-limbed scribbles adding a sense of barely contained chaos as Cow bipedally scampers through the scenes.”
“This is orthographical humor at its best, and it could inspire a freestanding swap-one-letter game once the book closes.”
