Reading Round-up 2013: week 17

Posted on: October 25, 2013

(This was the week of the LA Times Festival of Books, so I was busy buying books rather than reading them. Still, I managed to read through this short picture book before buying a copy for my mom, who likes moose for some odd reason.)

This Moose Belongs to Me by Oliver Jeffers

When Wilfred finds a moose, he decides to name it Marcel and keep it as a pet.  Wilfred has lots of important rules for Marcel, to help him be a good pet. But Marcel isn’t always good at following them.

Jeffers writes and illustrates the silliest books, and this is no exception.  The mix of art styles – Jeffers usual cartoonish style and the more traditional and realistic looking landscapes – fit the story quite well.
