Malcolm Gets an Invitation

Not all friends fit into a standard pattern of what a friend should look like, and Malcolm the moose certainly is not standard. However, two of his best friends are determined that size should not stop Malcolm from being included in any fun party plans. Ingenuity and imagination help to keep Malcolm upright so that he and all his friends can enjoy the party.
