Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Oliver Jeffers Work..yet again! I've owned this for a few years and read it to my kids often. Being Canadian and a story about a Moose make my kids believe it was "true" story ... haha. Such a fun read and beautiful images.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from hard topic for kids Can children understand a child claiming a moose for their own needs. The whole premise seemed weird. Borrowed this from library and returned.

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.
