A very enjoyable tale about one young girl’s holiday set during a dark and dreary Alaska winter. As the snow piles up, a moose takes up residence in her backyard, eating the family’s trees . . . particularly the tree that holds the girl’s swing. The family tries various foods to distract the moose from the tree, but nothing works until one magical night, the last night of Hanukkah, when the girl and her parents gather to watch the aurora borealis put on a show.
