April 2011 Non-Fiction Book of the Month.

At first I thought this was just a good quality picture book about a Miniature Schnauzer and it took my fancy because my daughter has one. In fact the simple and well written story, told from the dog’s perspective, has an underlying poignancy as he tries to understand his owner’s sadness, which makes you smile and empathise. It shows that looking after something or someone else can stop us centering on ourselves in these recession filled times. It will of course appeal to dog lovers but also to those of all ages, male and female, who are feeling down about life and need to appreciate the good things. The photos have a quirky modern look which makes the book different and even children, who might miss out on the moral of the story, would like them. Highly endearing to keep for yourself or a lovely gift to amuse or cheer someone up whatever their circumstances.

Synopsis

My Name is Moose by Martin Usborne

My Name is Moose is all about Moose. In fact, it's written by him. And it's all about what it's like to be a dog in the recession. Captured through Martin's photographs, Moose tells the story of a dog's life in East London, introduces us to his friends, favourite smells and thoughts on the modern world. It's really a story about enjoying the simple things ...and chasing squirrels. Through Moose's first-hand account of the highs and lows of being a photographer's dog, we discover a wagging tale about not giving up and being a man's best friend through good times and bad.
