"Making the Moose Out Of Life" by Nicholas Oldland (Pikku Publishing)

Imagine the possibilities that open out before you in life, if you turn a "No" into a "Yes".

"Making the Moose Out of Life" is the latest in Nicholas Oldland's fun series of 'message' books, this time describing the joy of living your best life, even if (like us) you're a bit of a shy retiring type, quite often anxious and reluctant to join in.

Moose is such a creature, worried that he'll look daft and silly if he tries to join in with the other animals in their games - but secretly wishing for acceptance.

With an observational eye as sharp as a needle, Nicholas makes great use of humour to bring the core message to life - that you only live once, so try everything - what's the worst that can happen?

Sum this book up in a sentence: Absolutely brill for younger readers, a fab animal-based moral tale with a great pay-off at the end.

"Making the Moose out of Life" by Nicholas Oldland is out now, published by Pikku Publishing (kindly supplied for review).
