Maury C. Moose And The Forest Noel by Adam Baker is an adorable story set against the backdrop of the Christmas season. A close knit community with the name of Noel lives in a magnificent forest and they have a story to tell about their adventure with animals like owls and lizards, Christmas and friendship, and their hero Maury. He has recurring nightmares about Christmas being ruined because he could not save that day. As the story progresses, we see the author subtly addressing the issue of anxiety and overcoming it. This lighthearted and fun story, with its friendship and camaraderie, will enchant and captivate young readers until the very end.
The book conveys the message of teamwork, perseverance and problem solving very well. It tells readers that there is nothing one cannot do if they set their mind to it. The narration is descriptive and detailed, and will make young readers dream and imagine. The sketches are nice and they complement the story beautifully. The characters are well crafted and the story is fast paced and fluid. It's a heartwarming story for children of all ages. It's a perfect book to gift during the holiday season and kids can also use it for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries. It's interesting to note how Maury and his friends come together and make a difference when everything is going against them. The story is refreshing with its puns and messages, and will definitely charm readers.
