The Ballad of Wilbur and the Moose

Stadler, J. (1989). The ballad of Wilbur and the moose. New York: Warner Juvenile Books.

Wilbur wants to start a pig farm out West. On his journey he meets a big blue moose ex-boxer named Alvin and with Alvin’s help collects pigs for his pig farm.

Genre: Fable, Fantasy, Picture Book

Grades: 4th-6th

Audience: Students, Parents, Teachers

I would give this book a three. Even though I believe this book is written for older readers, I believe that it is still very violent. It also depicts a cross-dressing pig.

What other stories do you know that involve giant blue animals?
