The Mooseman is a scary wild-man who lives in the foothills and everyone is afraid of him. The rumor says that he looks fierce and he acts viciously, but are the rumors true? One of the most formidable characteristics of the Mooseman is the heart-stopping sound he makes as he attacks his prey: his screech makes your teeth chatter and your heart pound with fear. McClatchie paints a sinister portrait of this loner and his environment while Maier relates—in her characteristic rhyming text—what happened one late summer night when a small child named Emily got lost in the frightening woods around her family’s campsite. Oh, but it ends wonderfully well—just wait and see!
