About the Book



One day, a very hungry fox meets a very plump goose. A dinner invitation is offered. Will dinner go as planned? Or do the dinner plans involve a secret ingredient? From the brilliant mind of Willems comes a surprising lesson about listening to one's inner voice. Full color.



Book Synopsis



That Is Not a Good Idea! is a hilarious, interactive picture book from bestselling author and illustrator Mo Willems, the creator of books like Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, the Knuffle Bunny series, the Elephant and Piggie series, Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs, and many other new classics.

Inspired by the evil villains and innocent damsels of silent movies, Willems tells the tale of a hungry fox who invites a plump goose to dinner. As with the beloved Pigeon books, kids will be calling out the signature refrain and begging for repeated readings. The funny details in the full-color illustrations by three-time Caldecott Honoree Mo Willems will bring nonstop laughter to story time.

Review Quotes



Praise for GOLDILOCKS AND THE THREE DINOSAURS: "With a sense of irony (and humor) as sharp as this dinosaur trio's talons, Willems's retelling is a sure bet for audiences who have moved beyond more gently witty fare."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Trust Willems to blend silents, animation, and comics for a wickedly droll poultry-in-peril yarn."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Praise for HOORAY FOR AMANDA AND HER ALLIGATOR: "Six and a half short stories make up this expertly paced page-turner about a girl and her toy alligator, laced with the kid-centric humor on which Willems has built his career. "--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Praise for HOORAY FOR AMANDA AND HER ALLIGATOR: "The pacing, word volume and wide trim size are all inviting and encouraging, bringing readers close to the cozy friendship between Amanda and her impatient stuffed friend. "--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"A new offering of guaranteed laughs from three-time Caldecott-honoree Willems....Pure glee."--Kirkus Reviews

"There's a trifecta of reading possibilities here: an energetic storytime, a read-alone, and a raucous readers' theater."--Horn Book (starred review)

"This charmer is lovingly composed as an homage to silent movies and the concept of picture books as the 'theater of the lap.' Children and adults will relish being taken for such a thrilling, suspenseful ride again and again."--School Library Journal (starred review)

Praise for GOLDILOCKS AND THE THREE DINOSAURS: "On every page, the text winks broadly at readers, first pointing to and then playing with conventions of folklore, narrative voice, literary foreshadowing, and plain old common sense."--Horn Book (starred review)

Praise for GOLDILOCKS AND THE THREE DINOSAURS: "This is pure Mo Willems, from the many visual gags in the cleanly drawn illustrations and the tight, tongue-in-cheek story line to the endpapers .... Readers of all ages will find much to chuckle about in this wacky retelling."--School Library Journal (starred review)
