When Luke finds a moose in the backyard, nobody believes him - and then nobody can make it go away!

Luke gets up early one Saturday morning and finds a moose in the backyard. He wakes up his dad, and then his mom, and each declares that "moose never come on the farm" - only to be surprised (and squashed) by the moose itself. Mom tries to shoo it away with a broom - but the moose eats it. Dad tries to scare it away with a hose - but the moose takes a nice bath. Luke feeds the moose carrots and decides to keep it in his tree house. But then Luke's sisters come along, with a surprising solution to the problem!

Listen and follow along as Robert Munsch recounts this most unusual tale!
