He is a moose like no other. He believes he is a mouse—so much so that he even tries to move into a mouse's house! Follow the heartwarming adventures of our near-sighted moose as he encounters other creatures in his journey of self-discovery. His story reveals universal and timely themes—be yourself. Believe in yourself. Delight in your own uniqueness. You don't even have to look far or don a pair of glasses!


Imagine you are 6 feet tall and weigh 1000 pounds.  You are a moose and yet you picture yourself as a mere mouse!  Follow our misguided moose in his engaging, whimsical quest to gain affirmation and insight.  During his adventure, he meets up with other animals.  Some tease and mock him.  Some are kinder and set him on a path of self-discovery.  He is certainly unlike any other creature … or is he?!
