Can you imagine the excitement in the town of Birora, Minnesota when Waino and Ivar found a moose in their father's stable, eating up the hay? The moose looked so sad they couldn't bear to shoot him. What should they do? The policeman came. The mayor came. And then...three young boys came up with a solution, and the townspeople adjusted to life with a moose in their midst.

Come join the adventure of how Honk is saved!

Based on a true story from Biwabik, Minnesota and set in the early 1930's, the text is filled with rich, historical facts about life for Finnish immigrant children in a small Minnesota town.

Delightful tale based on a true story By Midwest Book Review

When Waino and Ivar find a moose in their father's stable, the critter looked so sad they couldn't bear to shoot him. The final solution to this unique situation is as heartwarming as it is entertaining. This is a delightful tale based on a true story from Biwabik, Minnesota, and replete with historical information about life for Finnish immigrant children in Minnesota. When it was originally published, Honk: The Moose won distinction as a Newbery Honors Book in 1936. It went on to win the Lewis Carol Shelf Award in 1970, and was listed in Cattermole's 100 Best Children's Books of the 20th Century. Now in a new edition from Trellis Publishing, Phil Strong's Honk: The Moose (wonderfully illustrated by Kurt Wiese) is once again introduced to a whole new generation of appreciative children.

 
Amazon.com reviews:

An old Newbery winner reborn By Deborah L. Mace "Aunt Deb" This book was a 1936 Newbery Honor winner that has been republished deservedly so. A cute story of two boys who discover a moose has found his way into the barn with the horses. After a bit of an uproar the town sort of adopts this moose that the boys name Honk. After years out of publication the mayor of the real - life town in the book did what he had to do to have this award winning book reprinted. Thank you sir! A short fast read and a great story.

 
Fun By Doting Nana  This is a chapter book. My daughter read it over a period of nights to her children. She said it was enjoyable to all and humorous.

Honk : The Moose By C. Roe  A fun story I enjoyed reading as much as the children did.
