A Moose for Jessica is a 1987 non-fiction children's book about a moose named Josh who loved a cow called Jessica. The story is told by Pat A. Wakefield and is illustrated with photographs by Larry Carrara, the owner of the cow.

In 1986, Josh turned up at a farm in Shrewsbury, Vermont and began to show decided attraction toward Jessica, a Hereford cow. He stayed in the vicinity for 76 days. The visit of the moose inspired media attention and attracted tens of thousands of people to the area.
