This Moose Belongs to Me

Oliver Jeffers

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? A beautifully-illustrated, witty and thought-provoking story, exploring the concept of ownership.

Review

oliver-jeffers-revOliver Jeffers’ recent visit to Australia won him a whole new fan base with his quirky illustrative style and delightful Irish accent, so it’s exciting to finally have his new book, This Moose Belongs to Me, in store.

The moose in question is a quiet and hungry fellow, more interested in eating apples than obeying the endless rules of his ‘owner’, Wilfred.

But when Wilfred and the moose are out having an adventure one day, they discover someone else who thinks she owns the moose. Oh, no!

Paintings of mountainous backgrounds enhance Jeffers’ illustrations and really add to the atmosphere. A poignant and thought-provoking book.
