When mild-mannered Moose investigates some shouts that have disrupted his peaceful existence, he is drawn into an ongoing conflict between Bear and Eagle. Before long, the whole forest is fighting, throwing sticks and stones at each other. Moose instead builds a beautiful and elaborate shelter, making some of the combatants wonder if their time might be better spent working together. A two-time Kate Greenaway Award winner, Michael Foreman makes these warring animals look childlike and cute in his illustrations, while his 1971 story for readers and listeners up to 6 features some droll wordplay and puns.
