Mo Willems, Pigeon likes cookies too!

As you can imagine our friend Pigeon is NOT HAPPY in Mo Willems newest addition to the famous pigeon books.  Not only is he upset that the Duckling get's a cookie- he's completely bewildered about the whole thing.  The concept that all the Duckling had to do was 'ask politely' is almost more that dear Pigeon can take.

I'm always so delighted to read ANYTHING written by Mo (yeah, we're on a first name basis- I wish).  Whenever I pick up one of his books I know it's going to be just as funny to me as it is to my kids.

I can't help but laugh when we get to this page...
Not only am I laughing at Pigeon but at the uncontrollable giggling that inevitably erupts from all three of my children (ages 2, 4, & 6).

I'm absolutely ecstatic to add this book to our ever growing Mo collection... I consider his books as MUST OWN.  They are not part of the to borrow occasionally variety.

Q:  Do my children quote Pigeon constantly?
A:  Hubba-Whaa!?!
