The Duckling Gets a Cookie!?
Category: Children’s Picture Book
Synopsis: Duckling asks for—and receives—a cookie. What will Pigeon’s reaction be?
Rating: *** (3-star scale)
Comments:I love how Willems’ books often have tiny morals or behavioral lessons and often attach a surprise ending. This is one of the best in those respects. My husband even read it and liked it so much he wondered aloud who we might buy it for.
I have a soft spot for rowdy characters like Pigeon who rage off the deep end—and also for soft-spoken big-eyed characters like Duckling who always seem to be a step ahead because they’re so even-keeled and clearheaded. I think children (adults, too) see themselves in both.
Read this one. I think you’ll like it.
Would you recommend this to a friend?Yes.
