Mo Willems delivers a smorgasbord of hunger, hubris, regret, and redemption as a Busy Creature hilariously chomps and chews its way through the alphabet now in board book format.
I have a weirdly specific soft spot for alphabet books that also tell a story - I think it’s fun to try and imagine a story that works in alphabetical order. This book is fun and inventive, and just as silly and charming as we’ve all come to expect Mo Willems to be. There is lots to look at on each page, and lots of opportunities to laugh together!
Mo Willems knows a Good Idea when he sees one. A three-time Caldecott Honor winner (for <em>Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!</em>, <em>Knuffle Bunny</em>, and <em>Knuffle Bunny Too</em>), he also won two Geisel Medals and two Geisel Honors for his Elephant and Piggie books. His books are perennial <em>New York Times</em> bestsellers, including <em>Knuffle Bunny Free</em>, <em>Hooray for Amanda & Her Alligator!</em>, and the Cat the Cat series. Before he turned to making picture books, Mo was a writer and animator on <em>Sesame Street</em>, where he won six Emmys. Mo lives with his family in Massachusetts.
