Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"Youngsters will cheer the pals' inevitable reunion and will...request an immediate rereading of this gently humorous and heartwarming tale of friendship found, lost and regained." Publishers Weekly, starred review

Review:

"An eye-catching and imaginative book with illustrations that vary from close-ups of the imposing moose against a white background to landscapes of the moose standing tall in his very own Albert Bierstadt painting. Pet lovers and nature lovers alike will enjoy this offbeat and entertaining tale." Kirkus Reviews

Oliver Jeffers never lets me down. Wildfred names his moose Marcel and teaches him how to be a pet. But does he really belong to a little old lady who claims his name is Rodrigo? Read this awesome, beautifully illustrated picture book by Jeffers to find out. Perfect for boys or girls who love animals and funny stories!
