My Thoughts

My girls and I enjoyed Mo Willems three stories from The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog!... and more stories. Mo Willems has a unique style of writing and has shown he is very creative as an illustrator.

Of the three stories presented we liked the Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed the best. We wished we could have reviewed his first volume. We like that he included his wife Cher and his daughter Trixie as part of each story narration.  You must check out Mo Willems interview as well. He gets four stars from us!
