Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Fall '12 Kids List
“Wilfred owned a moose. Or, at least, he THOUGHT he owned a moose. This strong-willed moose, however, has other ideas. Told with Jeffers' signature sense of humor, but illustrated in a newer, more lush style, this tale of not-quite pets is sure to delight all readers.”
-- Maggie Tokuda-Hall, Books Inc., San Francisco, CA


Description
From the illustrator of the #1 smash hit "The Day the Crayons Quit "comes the age-old tale of a boy and his moose . . .
Wilfred is a boy with rules. He lives a very orderly life. It's fortunate, then, that he has a pet who abides by rules, such as not making noise while Wilfred educates him on his record collection. There is, however, one rule that Wilfred's pet has difficulty following: Going whichever way Wilfred wants to go. Perhaps this is because Wilfred's pet doesn't quite realize that he belongs to anyone.
A moose can be obstinate in such ways.
Fortunately, the two manage to work out a compromise. Let's just say it involves apples.
Oliver Jeffers, the bestselling creator of "Stuck" and "The Incredible Book Eating Boy," delivers another deceptively simple book sure to make kids giggle.
