This Moose Belongs To Me

by Oliver Jeffers

Harpercollins (uk) | October 29, 2012 | Hardcover

This Moose Belongs To Me is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.

"Wilfred owned a moose. He hadn''t always owned a moose. The moose came to him a while ago and he knew, just KNEW that it was meant to be his. He called it Marcel."Most of the time Marcel is very obedient, abiding by Wilbur''s book of extensive rules on how to be a good pet. But sometimes he doesn''t quite seem to be listening, plus he has a tendency to wander off wherever he pleases when they go out walking. But Wilfred is still very proud to have a pet like Marcel.Until one day, deep in the woods, someone else seems to recognise Marcel! Is Marcel really Wilfred''s pet after all?A lavishly-llustrated, thought-provoking story, which cleverly and light-heartedly examines the concept of ownership.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This moose is for us! The latest picture book from Oliver Jeffers, "This Moose Belongs To Me" is actually the first full one of his that I've read. His reputation as a brilliant illustrator and storyteller is something I was aware of, as every bookseller should be, and I've admired the covers and prints of his books that I've come across. To meet him in person today at an author session was delightful! Then to see him in action was truly inspirational - Jeffers did a little presentation, not of the powerpoint and laser pointer kind, but narrated and drew a story with some paper and markers as he went along. This quirky story of Wilfred the boy and Marcel the moose, and the title in a reverse sense, reminded me quite a bit of Jon Klassen's "This Is Not My Hat," which I recently read and enjoyed very much as well. "This Moose Belongs To Me" has a childish innocence yet is maturely tongue-in-cheek. The illustrations and typography had that trademark Oliver Jeffers style (translation: amazing), and were richly coloured and textured. I cannot wait for what else this guy has up his sleeves, at the back of his mind, or in his words, in his trunk of half-cooked ideas that he rummages through once in a while and puts two together to get a fully-cooked idea. Jeffer's backlist is something I will definitely make an effort to collect and savour now.
