Review: A Chocolate Moose for Dinner by Fred Gwynne

A gorilla war? Car pools? Playing the piano by ear? It's no wonder a little girl is confused by some of the strange things she overhears her mommy and daddy saying. With his hilarious wordplay and zany illustrations, Fred Gwynne keeps children of all ages in stitches!

We picked this book from out local library.
I remember when I was a kid I read the book The King Who Rained and I loved it. And when I saw this book I was like oh goodness what is going to be said now and taken to be made funny. 
K's favorite parts are the following: 
1.) Stories like these drive me up a wall. And this is where the girl is driving a car up the wall. 
2.) And Daddy says he's going to tell me the story of the tortoise and the hair. Being as the hair is suppose to be a rabbit and not hair like on a person. lol. 

I really loved how each saying is made to be funny and makes it more enjoyable for the kids when reading it. 
This book along with The King Who Rained are books that I want to add to my personal library so I can read them to both of my kids time after time. This is a classic book that is perfect for all ages to read and laugh.
