This is a fun book for young people ready to move on from easy readers to reading fiction on their own. Moose's Big Idea begins with Moose losing his spectacular antlers. After a phone call to his mother, Moose is reassured that they'll grow back in the spring. There's only one thing to be done - he'll just have to stay inside his house over the winter and make sure that no one sees him. But he hasn't counted on his friend Hildy, a pig who won't take no for an answer. She busts into his house and points out all of the great features Moose has that his antlers had been hiding all along - like the prettiest little eyes she's ever seen.
Funny dialogue and situations over the course of Moose's antlerless winter will keep kids laughing, as Moose outwits a hunter and makes out on a moneymaking scheme selling his artwork and doughnuts.
