Illustrated by the author
for: kids...even older ones....or ESPECIALLY older ones!
Goodreads rating: 4.03
My rating: 4.5
Endpapers: a long, blue colored pencil line drawn across the page, turning at the end of each row, so that it looks like the string Wilfred unwinds so he won't get lost in the woods.
Illustrations: "The art for this book was made from a mishmash of oil painting onto old linotype and painted landscapes, and a bit of technical wizardry thrown in the mix here and there."
1st line: "Wilfred owned a moose."
My comments: I so enjoy this wonderfully creative writer and illustrator. Each book I read tickles me even more than the previous one! This one, about sharing friends, is doubly fun because of the moose angle - my favorite animal if I had to have one!
Goodreads summary: Wilfred owned a moose. 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. He thought he would call him Marcel.
Most of the time Marcel is very obedient, abiding by the many rules of How to Be a Good Pet. But imagine Wilfred's surprise when one dark day, while deep in the woods, someone else claims the moose as their own..
