Walking into the woods one day, Moose sees an old fiddle sticking out of the mud. With a dreadful, ear-splitting screech he begins to play. But Moose's music-making has a most disruptive effect on everyone he meets.

Kindergarten-Grade 2-Children who enjoyed Porter's One Potato (Bradbury, 1989; o.p.) and Little Wolf and the Giant (S.&S., 1990) will welcome Moose Music. The spare, comical story line, with few words on each page, is just enough to allow the illustrations to speak for themselves. Moose happens upon an old, rusted fiddle while wandering through the forest. When he plays, it makes a "dreadful ear-splitting sound" that disturbs beavers constructing a dam, a bear stealing honey, and a woodcutter chopping trees. So Moose discovers a seemingly deserted cliff where he can play to his heart's content. A female moose hears and adores his music; they decide to "make moose music together." The watercolor illustrations begin as muted forest shades that turn vibrant as the two fall in love. Porter's illustrations quiver whenever the fiddle screeches or the female moose warbles. A great read-aloud choice, especially for those with a knack for sound effects.
