Moose Think He’s Funny

Becoming a comedic North American Moose

I began illustrating Mashuga, and his moose buddies, many years ago, I had been thinking of opening a Mashuga Moose Cookie store. 

Then COVID-19 rolled into town in April while I was preparing to publish my first Mashuga Moose book. Without question or delay, I decided to put the other project aside and illustrate a series of stories about Mashuga confronting the reality of the pandemic.

I  children’s book series that might help kids talk about the COVID-19 pandemic. The illustrations present the visual story from the point of view of a Moose.  plenty of “sweet n’ funny tidbits” dads and moms will enjoy the embedded adult chuckles.

Mashuga and I speak quite often; he used to feel insecure about being different, it took a while, but with work, he doesn’t apologize anymore. He’s really silly, he can’t help himself, Mashuga believes in laughter, I think Mashuga is right, being able to make people laugh is a blessing.


Humans and Moose alike ask me all the time, “was Mashuga Moose the greatest moose that ever lived?” I tell them, “He was handsome, and yes, he was brilliant for a moose, his sense of smell and hearing weren’t that outstanding compared to typical Moose, but his logical problem-solving skill sets were off the charts. That Moose had a wicked good secret that only a few other Moose knew. Mashuga is off on an adventure, join him, you’ll be glad you did..

Mashuga wanted spring to come, he didn’t want to deal with the biting insects.  He was resigned to the fact that spring meant mud and biting bugs.
