I am almost afraid to make these words public as a teacher in an elementary school, but here goes nothing: "I am not a big fan of Mo Willems." Gasp! I just think some of the humor is goofy, and I do not care for the illustrations or where the story ends up most of the time. I can give a giggle now and then, but I think they fall short of what they could be. I know they are supposed to be simple. I get that. I just do not care for his books. I can appreciate a good picture book, but it has to hook me. This title did. It is so silly and has such a funny twist, I enjoyed reading it with my kids a lot, and it may be the only Willems book I really liked. Now everyone can hate me.
