Laser Moose and Rabbit Boy by Doug Savage
Andrews McMeel Publishing, 2016
Sarah: A moose that can shoot lasers from his eyes and his rabbit friend take on aliens, a mutant aquabear, and mechasquirrel. The woods will never be the same! The silliness is just perfect for middle grade readers — it’s got a similar tone to the comics-within-comics in Captain Underpants, but with bolder color illustrations. With the humor and moose content, I would pair this with Daniel Pinkwater’s books.
Gene: I loved this book, too. At times it’s totally berserk, like when the moose accidentally shoots the legs off a deer. The resulting Frankendeer was unexpected, but no weirder than the rest of the book.
