The Duckling Gets A Cookie!? by Mo Willems

A written review by Cathie Sue

The Duckling Gets A Cookie!? by Mo Willems

Willems hits another one right out of the ballpark with this easy picture book.  Duckling gets a cookie. Really, that’s the story.  Except Pigeon, in his usual grating and demanding way wants to know “Hey! How did you get that cookie!?” (We love Pigeon for multiple reasons but mostly because he acts just like our kids!)  Even though Duckling gets top billing in the title we get plenty of Pigeon grandstanding as he murmurs about all the things he never gets.

No worries. Pigeon gets a cookie and Duckling turns out to be master of diplomacy and cuteness. Kids will want this one again and again, probably with cookies!
