I love Oliver Jeffers' books [part 1]


This Moose Belongs to Me by Oliver Jeffers
Philomel, Penguin, November 13th, 2012

When a moose comes Wilfred's way, he knows it was meant for him, so he names it Marcel. While Marcel only follows Wilfred's rules when he wants to, Wilfred thinks he's a pretty good pet-- that is, until someone else claims the moose is really hers.Instead of his usual minimalist backgrounds, Jeffers mixes it up, using old prints and paintings to set the scene. Oliver Jeffers is brilliant and This Moose Belongs to Me is humorous, quirky, all-around fun for children and adults alike.
