The Moose, the Snake and the Alien

9 Aug

Mac’s brief and pithy portrayal of the life and death of a moose creates an entertaining and absurd visual for readers.  Has a jawbone ever been more quirky and interesting?!

The animal is a ten-foot tall moose. The moose trampled other animals and ate grass, until one day it tripped over a rock and fell and lost its jawbone. It was later eaten by a twenty-foot snake. Then a giant alien found it and used it to clone an eight-foot moose. The alien also used the jawbone it to scratch his bald head.
