The Pigeon Wants A Puppy!by mo willems

by Mo Willems
“You know what I’ve always wanted forever (well, at least since last Tuesday)? A PUPPY!” Hilarious for kids and their parents, this cheeky little pigeon will do anything to get a puppy! The pigeon knows he’d make the best puppy owner ever, but quickly discovers a pet-project is a much bigger responsibility than he bargained for!

Willems is the winner of 2 Caldecott honors for Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive the Bus! and Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale. He’s also won 6 Emmy awards for his writing on Sesame Street, and it shows in this book. Adorable!
Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressedby mo willems

by Mo Willems
Wilbur the naked mole rat is a little weird. He really loves getting dressed up! The other naked mole rats don’t take it at all well—naked mole rats don’t wear clothes! Will Wilbur have to play it safe forever, or can he turn the naked mole rats on to another point of view? More than a story about self-expression, Wilbur is an entirely pink and toothy reminder it only takes one question to create more fun for everyone; “why not?” Another excellent book by the award-winning Mo Willems!
