The illustrations are just gorgeous in this book, big, bold and beautifully well done. This book is really funny, my daughter laughs so loud every time I read her this story. The book is a quick and meaningfully read. The book is about friendship and learning how to treat others. It makes you think do we really own the pets we have? It also teaches kids that aniamls don't always follow rules of proper pet behavior. I recommend this book for all children, the author Oliver Seffers did a fantastic job. The book is a children book which consist of 32 pages.
This is one of the most beautifully illustrated books I have ever seen. And the message is timeless and universal. I think any age of person would enjoy it and would remember it for years to come.
The watercolor illustrations in This Moose... are strikingly beautiful in their simplicity. Jeffers even manages to capture the "mood" of the moose. The boy in the story, Wilfred, is charming, endearing, and absolutely loveable. The text is brief which is how I prefer the text in picture books to be. If the pictures in a PICTURE book aren't telling the story, then to my mind it's not a true picture book. Also, and this is no small thing to a former Children's librarian, This Moose Belongs to Me has a certain rhythm and careful word choice that make it an ideal read-aloud.
Wilfred believes this moose is his. To his dismay, he finds that it is not. It is wild creature that "belongs" to many and follows its own rules. Once he accepts this truth, his friendship with the moose becomes a mutually satisfying one. The best part of the story is the laugh-out loud humor that comes as Wilfred attempts to get the moose to obey his rules. Moose are not particularly cooperative creatures.Read more ›
A very sweet and simple tale about a precocious little guy named Wilfred who thinks he owns a moose whom he calls "Marcel". Little Wilfred isn't the only person who thinks he owns hungry "Marcel"... Every time I read this book I find it even more hilarious than the last time! Can't wait until my son is 3 or 4 to get the humor, too!

I like many other books better. I read it to my son once and he hasn't let me read it to him again. And he loves Moose, we call him Moose. That could change, all things do. Read morePublished 5 months ago by CG7676
