Various and Sundry

Magnet #583 - Moose

Another magnet from @KristinaMyers' Etsy store - a cool little moose!

Love this little guy - mainly because every time I travel to New England, I keep hoping to see a moose. And never do. It's kinda like my bear hunts.

This moose reminds me of the best series I've never finished reading, but wish I would. Van Reid and his wonderful Moosepath League.

The series is set in 1800s Maine, and starts with Cordelia Underwood, who introduces you to a terrific little universe, which includes the oddly charming Moosepath League - the Misters Ephram, Eagleton, Thump and Walton...and their little tagalong, Sundry Moss. Together the League goes on the laugh-out-loud adventures - oh, not the kind of Superman, but probably more enjoyable and definitely funnier than most.

They continue through several books - definitely check 'em out, well worth the read.
Pin It!

Mr. Reid, thanks so much for dropping by!

After I raved and raved about Cordelia (I had to read it for the Doubleday Book Club back in 98), my sister went on to read and own all of the Moosepath League books, and loved them. Sundry and Tobias, in particular. And Mollie. And Cordelia. (Yes, she's dictating this as I type.)

She's also hoping that we'll see more of the ML soon!
