The St. Louis County Library Foundation and Left Bank Books are pleased to present a Reading Garden Event Series program with children's book author Oliver Jeffers, who will discuss his new book "This Moose Belongs to Me." The free, public event will be held on Sunday, November 18 at 2:00 p.m. at Library Headquarters, 1640 S. Lindbergh Blvd.
Books will be available for purchase at the event from Left Bank Books.
Oliver Jeffers, the bestselling creator of "Stuck" and "The Incredible Book Eating Boy," delivers another deceptively simple book sure to make kids giggle.
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 is a renowned and award-winning artist and picture book creator. He was the recipient of the 2006 Nestlé Gold Medal, the highest honor for children's books in his native UK. His previous picture books, the New York Times bestseller "Stuck," "How to Catch a Star," "Lost and Found" (which was made into an animated film), "The Way Back Home," "The Incredible Book Eating Boy," "The Great Paper Caper" and "The Heart and the Bottle" have won many awards including the Blue Peter Book of the Year and the Irish Book Awards Children's Book of the Year, and he has been shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal.
St. Louis County Library Foundation's Reading Garden Event Series hosts free family events with authors and musicians. Sponsors include Commerce Bank, Companion, and the Sara Guth Costigan Memorial Fund.
