I Love Mo Willems!

The Duckling Gets a Cookie!? words and pictures by Mo Willems is another great pigeon book.  Willems really gets to the heart of a preschooler with pigeon.  The pigeon acts exactly like a little boy that's in my library right now!  No inside voice, no walking, just yelling, squealing and running, but then he's a toddler, that's what they do.  Pigeon's personality is not unique, but Willems is pretty unique in his ability to capture the toddler spirit.  There are others, but they are few and far between.  And I'd like to know why I didn't get a cookie too!
