Moose Baby

(1 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Publisher: Barrington Stoke

Jess knew having a baby at seventeen was not going to be easy, especially as everyone kept telling her so. But nothing could have prepared her for giving birth to a moose baby.

Non-human children are rare, but not unheard of, so Jess and her boyfriend Nick do the best they can with their four-legged, hairy, 85kg child. First steps, toilet training and primary school all throw up additional stresses for the new parents but when their rapidly growing moose hits sexual maturity at the age of three, they begin to question their ability to look after him at all.

This utterly hilarious short novel highlights the difficulties of raising a child that is different, especially when you are a young parent. Despite the surreal subject matter, Jess and Nick are believable and likeable characters. A fun, quirky read that will have you laughing out loud.
