There's A Book

This Moose Belongs to Me by Oliver Jeffers

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.

Oliver Jeffers is a favorite author/illustrator of mine and the kiddos. This year we’re incredibly lucky because he has a couple of new picture books coming out as well as one the first month of 2013 that he’s illustrated by John Boyne. Obviously his illustrations are unbelievably brilliant, but each of his books has a touch of humor that both kiddos and parents can enjoy.

Here are a few of his most popular picture books as well as the two others out this/next year besides the one listed above:

    I’m loving the cover on this one…it looks to be a “real” photograph with young Wildfred crafted into it. The combination makes you looks twice.
