Candace Spizzirri

Candace's creative spirit shines through in her heartfelt, humorous story, Finley: A Moose on the Caboose, set to release in the spring of 2023

Illustrated by Chantelle & Burgen Thorne & inspired by a trip to Alaska, Candace introduces us to Finley, a friendly moose who longs for an Alaskan adventure. But "rules are rules" and wild animals aren't allowed to ride the rails.

No matter the disguise, Conductor Jones sees Finley for what he truly is. But when things don't go as planned, having a moose on board just might be what everyone needs.
