This Moose Belongs to Me is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
WINNER of the Irish Book Awards Children’s Book of the Year 2012 and the Honour Award for Illustration from Childrens' Books Ireland, 2013. An exquisite new book, featuring a boy and his moose, from internationally bestselling, multi-prize-winning picture book creator, Oliver Jeffers. “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 thought he would call him Marcel.” Most of the time Marcel is very obedient, abiding by the many rules on How to Be a Good Pet. But one dark day, while deep in the woods, someone else claims the moose as their own… Is Marcel really Wilfred’s pet after all? An beautifully-illustrated, witty and thought-provoking story, exploring the concept of ownership.

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.
