The age-old tale of a boy and his moose . . . now a New York Times bestseller! 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.

A humorous take on the idea that people can't own wild animals. The background art adds a special quality of majesty that one doesn't normally expected in a picture book like this. It contrasts nicely with Jeffers characters.Library copy.
Jeffers wins again. This was an enchanting example of counterpoint illustration-text relationship (I set it squarely on my goodreads 'counterpoint' shelf, which has only 7 books--cue cricket chirps).That is, the pictures contradict what the words say, and vice versa. Jeffers' take on counterpoint ga...
