Mucky, the muckiest, smelliest moose in the forest proves that smelling bad has its advantages when trying to outwit a fierce wolf.

PreSchool-Grade 2-- An amusing, but slight, yarn about a smelly moose who overpowers a hungry wolf with his repulsive odor. Mucky Moose, so called because he is indeed filthy, attracts the attention of a mean wolf, who brags to his fellow wolves that he will eat Mucky. However, when he confronts the moose, Mucky's stench is so repulsive that the wolf is stricken mid-leap. Two additional attempts are made by the wolf, and he ultimately gives up and leaves the forest forever. Allen, whose strength lies in his visual rather than his textual humor, specializes in quirky characters whose entertaining expressions extend and expand the humor of the story--the wolf's nasty plotting and Mucky's serene assurance in his invulnerability are both delightfully captured by Allen's droll cartoon style. Unfortunately, the tale ends abruptly and on a vaguely discordant note--the wolf leaves the forest to become a "guide wolf for the blind," thereby trivializing a rather important relationship between some humans and their guide animals. An entertaining but nonessential purchase that will appeal to fans of Tony Ross and Daniel Pinkwater. --Dorothy Houlihan, White Plains Pub . Lib . , NY
