Description
(Winner of the 2012 Irish Book Awards Junior Children's Book of the Year) Earning his second Irish Book Award (he won his first with The Incredible Book-Eating Boy), Oliver Jeffers's hilarious take on pet "ownership" for readers up to 8 begins with a boy named Wilfred and the moose that came to him one day. Wilfred just knew the moose was meant to be his, and so names him Marcel and begins to instruct him in all the many rules of how to be a good pet. At times Marcel makes an excellent pet, doing just what Wilfred wants him to do (basically, acting like a moose), though at other times Marcel is a bit of a disappointment (not going where Wilfred wants to go). But everything in Wilfred's happy world of moose ownership changes when someone else greets Marcel as her moose, Rodrigo, and Wilfred realizes that "his" moose has a life of his own. Jeffers portrays the bowtie-clad Wilfred and the placid, distractible moose with broadly painted strokes, placed over background reproductions of dramatic landscape paintings for comedic effect.

"Wilfred's struggle plays out against dawn-kissed mountain ranges, brooding spruces, and sweeping American plains, giving the proceedings an air of faux-solemn dignity that's hilariously at odds with Wilfred's dorky personality. The moose may not belong to Wilfred, but the laughs certainly belong to Jeffers."Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A spirited, appealing romp that hums with motley vitality and good-natured humor, certain to induce cheers and groans and chuckles galore."Booklist (starred review)
