School Library Journal - 06/01/2017 PreS-Gr 1—Wade is a young moose who loves his antlers because they look like trumpets and birds can perch on them. He does not want to lose them, ever. When the antlers become wobbly, Wade takes precautions so they don't fall off. But sitting out of activities means that he misses out on fun and friendship, so he learns to accept the inevitable and enjoy what takes the place of his antlers.

A perfect choice for one-on-one sharing.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, Alta. - Copyright 2017 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
