"The Moose at the Manger" is a creative version of the Nativity as seen through the eyes of a moose named Muse. Muse was told the Christmas story by her parents while making a cold winter's journey with her brothers under the stars. Dazzled by the story of the gift of the Christ Child and the glittering stars, Muse becomes separated from her parents and lost. Her crying is comforted by a new fine friend, Star Bright, the brightest star in the sky. Star Bright takes Muse on a special journey across many faraway places, which she assures Muse will end restoring her to her parents, enriched and happy with her new experiences. Finally, magically, Muse is brought to the stable and the manger where the Christ Child is born, and she joyfully and respectfully bows her head in adoration. Star Bright then leads Muse back to her father and mother and family, where she shares her wonderful story as moose witness to the birth in the manger of the Christ child. Perfect for young children age 5 and up, "The Moose at the Manger" come with a free audio digital book download, and a complete digital entertainment package.
