Book Review: That is NOT a Good Idea! by Mo Willems

That is NOT a Good Idea!, written and illustrated by Mo Willems is reminiscent of silent movies, with the classic damsel in distress. The story starts with a hungry fox inviting a plump goose for dinner and as the story continues in a familiar fable like arc a young chick (and young readers and listeners) repeat in growing volumes that they think the choices made are NOT a Good Idea. Full-color illustrations, the repeated phrase, and the unexpected ending will make this a fast favorite and a requested re-read.

That is NOT a Good Idea! is yet another must-have from Willems. I do not know how to give this book a better endorsement than simply telling everyone to add it to their collections. I should just make this book all about Mo for the sheer volume and excellence of his work...
