Item description for An Elk Dropped in by Andreas Steinhofel, Kerstin Meyer & Alisa Jaffa...

While out on a test run to demonstrate his skill and strength, Mr. Moose crashes into young Billy's house and injures his leg, but while waiting for Father Christmas to come and get him, Mr. Moose finally gets his chance to shine as Billy and his entire family eagerly listen to all his stories about his special life way up on the North Pole.

Publishers Description
An unexpected visitor makes Christmas special for a little boy. While performing a trial run for Santa Claus--the reindeer are far too dainty and aloof for such risky business--Mr. Moose goes off course and crashes through the roof of Billy Wagner's house, injuring his leg. There's nothing to do but to stay there until he recovers, regaling the family with stories until Father Christmas comes to get him. Billy's fascination with Mr. Moose lifts the little boy's spirits as he faces a new year with hope. This perennial best-seller in Germany will bring Christmas cheer to all readers.

Reviews - What do customers think about An Elk Dropped in?

This is a new Christmas classic  Jan 12, 2008
My family and I (two grown girls who still love stories) shared this book over Christmas. We took turns reading it to one another. I must say, this is highly recommended. This book has a certain, how shall I say, slyness to it -- it covers many "modern" topics: divorce, IKEA, and the general difficulty of "keeping it together" in a modern world. Nonetheless, here is this almost anachronistic figure of Mr. Moose, who speaks with his arch language and his old-fashioned manners, and tells quite a story.

It also presents Santa (Father Christmas) in a rather unusual light, not at all the timeworn "ho, ho, ho!"

Above all, this book captures the childlike spirit of Christmas, the magic and the wistfulness. It belongs in your Christmas box.
Recommended for year-round enjoyment  Jan 6, 2007
While doing a trial run for Santa Claus Mr. Moose gets off course and crashes through Billy's roof, injuring his leg. The entire family gathers to hear his tales of adventures - except for a nosy neighbor, who is a hunter and envisions a bounty for bagging Mr. Moose. When Father Christmas shows up for his moose carrying a bag of Milky Way Power, enabling Mr. Moose to fly - the family finds their own route into high adventure in this zany story which just missed December's issue, but is recommended for year-round enjoyment for libraries looking for different holiday themes for grades 4-6.
