Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!: Written and Illustrated by Mo Willems

I can unabashedly give this book a terrible review because it has been wildly popular for reasons unknown to me. If I had to speculate, I think the formulaic nature of books appeals very directly to parents, fitting the mold of ‘what a children’s book should be’ and capturing the attention of the child by allowing them to recognize a pattern that they can use to participate in the reading or their own imagined rereading or retelling. 304 more words

Congratulations to KZ on her new book. I hope it really takes off. There are too few illustrated books around these days.

Stuck by Oliver Jeffers

Taking the simple starting point of a little boy getting his kite stuck up a tree and delivering what spirals into a wacky and humorous adventure, Jeffers proves that all you need for a great children’s book is sharp wit and a playful mind. 136 more words
