What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

From the illustrator of the #1 smash hit The Day the Crayons Quit comes 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.

Quotes from This Book

  • “He hadn’t always owned a moose. The moose came to him a while ago and he knew, just KNEW that it was meant to be his.”
  • “Sometimes the moose wasn’t a very good pet. He generally ignored Rule 7: going whichever way Wilfred wants to go.”
  • “One day, as Wilfred discussed their plans for the coming year on a particularly long walk, he made a terrible discovery…SOMEONE ELSE THOUGHT SHE OWNED THE MOOSE.”

I absolutely love the mixed-media look of the artwork in this book, and would happily display it on the wall of my daughters’ bedroom. The story is fun and silly and just a really happy book to read. (Also my kids are now begging for a pet moose, so, fair warning?)
