by Kelly Tovsen

Murray the Moose Finds His Mother is intended to relate to the fears children sometimes experience while growing up. In nature, moose calves generally become separated from their mothers at around one year of age. Murray doesn't handle this separation well but overcomes his fear of being separated from his mother simply by growing into a large bull and realizing he no longer needs her. She has done her job and taught him well.

All of Kelly's stories use different Alaskan animals to deal with the trials and triumphs of growing up. Look for Penny the Puffin Learns to Swim as the next title in this collection of Alaskan wildlife stories where Penny has to overcome being teased by her peers in order to learn to swim.

Biography
Kelly originally wrote her collection of Alaskan wildlife children's stories to read to her own children when they were young. Now that her toughest critics are grown adults, they still have fond memories of these stories. Kelly has called Alaska home for thirty-three years. Since retiring from opticianry in 2014, she has found time to pursue other interests, like writing. She and her husband, Oliver, live on the beach in Happy Valley, Alaska, with their two Welsh corgis, Nikko and Molly.
