Arlo Guthrie wrote the sparse but amusing text. And the colorful, Orphan Annie-like illustrations are from Alice M. Brock of Alice's Restaurant fame.

NPR's Scott Simon and Weekend Edition children's literature expert Daniel Pinkwater read the book together -- and discuss the many fine qualities of the moose.
