Oh no! Hunters, guns and taxidermy!
on 10 September 2012
We love dr seuss in our house so I sat down with my two 4 year olds to read this one without even thinking to check the story. Basically teh freindly moose has squatters on his horns who wont leave, he ends up starving and being pursued by hunters (the pictures show bullets streaming at the moose!!) my kids were very worried as I tried to skip over all this peril. In the end it's the little animals living on the horns that are captured by the hunters - we are then treated to a picture of them stuffed and haning on the hunting lodge wall. I know times have changed but I am very dissapointed that this book is still available - it is not what i want my kids to see. Maybe if they were older it would be better, but the book description says that it is good for older children and reading to younger children.
