Such a cute book! Very fun illustrations.  Your child will learn a bit about moose in the beginning followed by learning to love yourself as is.   I found it highly enjoyable and so did my toddler!

I really like books by Andrew Cangelose, they are silly and very cute. In this book you are supposed to learn all about moose, but the moose in the book is a bit clumsy and tends to ruin things - so when he accidentally falls into the text he has to put it back together. 

This was a great book about being different and telling readers that it is ok to be a bit different. Whoopsie the moose is funny and you and your kids will have a great time reading about him and reading his story revisions. I really liked this clumsy moose and think he will make kids laugh while learning an important lesson - it is ok to be yourself and create a new narrative.

While not quite as cute as This is a Taco, this is still a winner and will be a welcome addition to our library's collection.

A funny book about a clumsy moose. Facts in the first half and humour in the second half. Good illustrations.

Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for the eARC

It’s a sweet book, but probably not for our shop. The reasons for this are two fold, one - it’s quite American, the moose is more of a US based animal, and the spellings and items like bagels and tacos etc are more incidentally US, which doesn’t always go well. 

Secondly our books tend to be a bit more niche, with a message, we like to carry books to help kids, emotions, grief, anger, LGBT issues etc, whereas this is charming, but not quite on brand. 

Very cute though.

This is a book about a moose named Whoopsie, who isn't the best moose there is ... but he is certainly enthusiastic! The book starts off with facts about moose, with Whoopsie thinking that he isn't the best moose for the job. Soon, Whoopsie falls & wrecks the book. He messes up the letters, which results in him making funny (and very untrue) facts about moose. It then proceeds into him realizing he' s a funny moose, so he tells stories about his wild falls.

I thought this was really cute! It was fun to see Whoopsie gain his confidence & realize that even if he isn't like the other moose, he is still a good moose. I also enjoyed the random moose facts throughout.

This book was entertaining and educational.  It wasn’t just about a silly moose.  You got to learn interesting facts about moose.  I learned a couple things and I loved the illustrations.  The moose was a cute character who is a little goofy and kids will love him!

I love picture books where the character in the story interacts with the book, and I really enjoyed Andrew Cangelose and Josh Shipley's previous book, This Is a Taco! I didn't find This Is a Whoopsie! as charming as that first book, but I still got a kick out of it nonetheless. I was especially partial to the friendship between Whoopsie and Bird. I also appreciated the positive message of finding what you're good at and valuing yourself. 

I received a digital ARC from the publisher via NetGalley.

I loved this book and I absolutely loved Whoopsie the moose! It's random, I just met one of the characters in another book that I'd love to read about a squirrel called Taco! Great story and great illustrations.

This is a book of information on Moose. Then it goes into the story of Whoopsie the Moose who fell alot. His friend the bird tries to help him and root him on to keep going. This is a great book to learn the basics of Moose and what they can and can not do. It is also a story of good friends and not giving up. The illustrations are very good and I love the face on Whoopsie. This would be a good bedtime story or story for ages 3+.  It is short enough to hold interest.I really liked this story and the message it gives. 
I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

This is Whoopsie by Andrew Cangelose, Josh Shipley 

This is supposed to be a book about all the different things moose can do, like leaping and jumping and being really tall. But maybe Whoopsie isn't the right moose for the job. You might want to pick a different moose for this book. Maybe instead we can do a book about falling down a lot? Yeah! Whoopsie would be great at that. This hilarious book about a clumsy moose shows that sometimes being a little different can make one great story.

This is an adorable book about a moose that couldn't do what other moose can do.  I think this was about learning yourself.  Learning that you don't have to be like everyone else.  You have special things that you can do that may be different from what other moose do.  Fall down and just get up again.
I will be buying this book for my twin granddaughter's.  Of course, living in Alaska a moose book is always something to look forward too.

Haha! I loved this quick read about Whoopsie the Moose! So funny! He's definitely accident-prone! :) I love how Taco the Squirrel from the other one is in this one briefly!

A very entertaining book that I could not help but think that my students will love. I highly recommend this for the artwork and story.

I came across this book after reading the author's "This is a taco."  Moose and his bird friend are an adorable pair.  I loved the participatory nature of the writing and would recommend it to fans of Mo Willem's Pigeon books.  This is a witty and fun read!

Whoopsie is an adorable, clumsy moose.  Great little book with some interesting moose facts and a silly moose.  In same style as first book in series – This is Taco! 
A fun, short read that will make you smile.  
Thank you NetGalley and publisher, Diamond Book Distributors, for the opportunity to read this ARC.

Whoopsie is a clumsy moose who does his best to fill the job of telling the reader all about moose.  He starts out with some real facts but bumbles his way into nonsense facts when he trips over the words and has to try and put them back in order.  A silly book guaranteed to get some giggles.

This book was adorable. Even as an adult, I found it an entertaining read. Whoopsie may not be as great as the other moose at showing you some things, but he has special characteristics that are all his own, showing you that no matter who you are, you have something to give this world. 

If you are looking for cute books for little kids, or just want to read one, this is a great choice.

A big thank you to NetGalley and Diamond Books for the ARC.  First off I was shocked at the price, if it really sells for $15.99 then I personally don't think it would be worth buying. It is an ok book. Has no real plot and basically tells you very little about being a moose. It's very short, yes it's cute that he is clumsy, but it's also silly. The graphics could have been better.  I rate this a 3.

A book that makes the Taco/Squirrel companion volume look a work of genius.  Pointless.

This is a silly book, about a moose so clumsy that he knocks all the words around in the book, and isn't sure how to put them back together the right way.  So, he has not only broken the fourth wall, but has stopped all over it.

At the beginning of the story, he is telling you true moose facts, by the end, he is making stuff up.

Here he is being clumsy.

 

 

 

And here he is trying to put the words back together again, int he right order.

 

 

Similar in tone to This is Taco. Little kids should love learning both true and silly moose facts.

Thanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review.
