04/30/10 - Writer Jackie Rowe tells a delightful tale of a chance meeting between two curious young boys and a mischievous moose in her new book, Here Moosey Moosey. When the boys join their father in the woods for a moose-hunting trip, they playfully yell out, “Here Moosey Moosey!” Imagine their surprise when a big bull moose answers their call. When the moose answers the boys’ questions about what it eats, where it sleeps and what games it likes to play, young readers get the opportunity to learn all about this fascinating animal.
Here Moosey Moosey is a 26-page book with glossy pages beautifully illustrated by Amanda Rees, a graduate of College of the North Atlantic Visual Arts Program. Rees is also the talented illustrator behind Moogie Moose & Friends: Atlantic Ocean Adventures.
Born and raised in St. John’s, Jackie Rowe has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Memorial University of Newfoundland. After graduation, she moved to Seldom, Fogo Island, where she began building a business in the fishing industry. The inspiration for Here Moosey Moosey came from a family moose-hunting trip that she took with her husband and two sons.
Here Moosey Moosey is published by James Lane Publishing and distributed by Downhome Inc. The book is currently available at Downhome Shoppe and Gallery, online at ShopDownhome.com, and in Downhome-supplied stores across Newfoundland.
