Lenny Moosecawitz - A Christmas Tale
by Richard Valentini

“Every moose in my herd always seemed to say, ‘That Lenny Moosecawitz should get out of the way.’ As a full-grown moose who’s strong as an ox, I’ll prove to those others that I can be tops.” Poor Lenny Moosecawitz just doesn’t fit in. When he’s kicked out of his herd, he sets off on a long, brave adventure. His plan? To go to the North Pole and pull Santa’s sleigh! Along the way, Lenny meets a colourful cast of characters: an elf named Too Short who has been kicked out of the toy shop, a pretty and smart reindeer with a little crush, and the big man—Santa himself! By trusting each other and making friends, Lenny learns that if you keep a positive outlook, ignore the naysayers, and stay on task, you achieve everything you dream of. Lenny Moosecawitz—A Christmas Tale is a delightful, funny rhyming story about the magic of Christmas, the power of friendship, and the strength we find when we can accept others for who they are inside.

Lenny Mooscawitz - A Christmas Tale is a story told in poetry form about two outsiders accidentally meeting together and with the help of others, especially a reindeer, Freda Fricklewartz, go about meeting their goals. It is a story of acceptance, friendship and giving others a chance to prove themselves. My story should appeal to children and young adults who are just starting to find their way in life and have to learn to be satisfied with who they are and be able to have others help guide them. What I've learned from a lifetime of teaching special ed students is that by providing people a safe, supportive environment to achieve in, they can accomplish their goals and be successful. Lenny, Too Short and Freda are the ones who become these three successful friends.
