Having read the other two Moosetache stories, I had to read this one as well, and I wasn't disappointed. I liked that she used 'perfectly perfect' again. This story of a family reunion vacation that doesn't go according to plan was both entertaining and cleverly written. I really loved the descriptions of the moose families traveling to the reunion. Tenting Moosetache's mustache to protect his family from the mosquitoes was a good way to incorporate the mustache into the plot. I liked it as much as Mooseltoe. ( )

Moosekitos, A Moose family Reunion is all starts when Moose starts to miss his family. So his wife gives him a great idea of planning a family vacation. They whole family came and Moose had so many activates planned, but when they got there no one wanted to be a part of it. Moose was upset and had to come up with a new plan to get the family together. He planned to have a campfire, but it complete changed into something none of them expected. Moosekitos! Luckily Moose mustache helped the family out with that. This book is a great read for children because it very funny, and the pictures are great. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0439828392, Paperback)

Moose misses his family-his aunties from Moosissippi, his cousins from Moosachusetts-the whole clan. But when everyone arrives at Moose Lodge, things don't go quite as Moose had planned. Alone with his sports equipment and long lists of coordinated activities, Moose despairs of ever being able to bring his family together. Just when he thinks it can't get any worse a swarm of moosekitos starts biting! Is it the end of a perfectly perfect vacation-or the beginning of a very moosey kind of togetherness?

Instantly reminiscent of the work of Osamu Dazai and Patricia Highsmith, Fuminori Nakamuras latest novel is a dark and twisting house of mirrors that philosophically explores the violence of aesthetics and the horrors of identity. A young writer arrives at a prison to interview a convict. The writer has been commissioned to write a full account of the case, from the bizarre and grisly details of the crime to the nature of the man behind it. The suspect, a world-renowned photographer named Kiharazaka, has a deeply unsettling portfoliolurking beneath the surface of each photograph is an acutely obsessive fascination with his subject.He stands accused of murdering two womenboth burned aliveand will likely face the death penalty. But something isnt quite right. As the young writer probes further, his doubts about this man as a killer intensify, and he struggles to maintain his sense of reason and justice. Is Kiharazaka truly guilty, or will he die to protect someone else?Evoking Truman Capotes In Cold Blood and Ry?nosuke Akutagawas Hell Screen, Last Winter, We Parted is a twisted tale that asks a deceptively sinister question: Is it possible to truly capture the essence of another human being?From the Hardcover edition.… (more)
