That is NOT a Good Idea! - Mo Willems
That is NOT a Good Idea!
by Mo Willems
Harper Collins, 2013. 48 pages. 

Portrayed in the style of silent films, Goose meets Fox, Fox invites Goose over to dinner, and Goose happily accepts. Between each scene, goslings warn of the danger with the title phrase "That is NOT a good idea!" The suspense builds... and the ending is laugh out loud amazing.

I can not get enough of Mo Willems. His books are brilliant, and this is no exception. Willems is a master of expressions. The visual storytelling is brilliant. The text is perfect. The silent film format is fun. This is a hilarious read-aloud that the whole family will enjoy.
