Nanette's Baguette

Nanette's BaguetteMo Willems has been very busy lately. Last year, he published The Thank You Book (the last entry in his wildly popular Elephant & Piggie series), contributed two books in the new series Elephant and Piggie Like Reading!, and wrote and illustrated the hilarious Nanette’s Baguette. Nanette is sent by her mom to the bakery to get the baguette. Will she forget? Will mom regret? Willems’s commitment to the rhyme gets funnier and funnier as the story progresses and will delight children and adults. The characters are drawn in the bold, clear style his fans will recognize. What makes the artwork really special, though, is that these characters are set against photographs of a beautiful hand-crafted cardboard-and-paper model French village. In this wonderful book Nanette has some trouble getting the baguette, but her mom knows that sometimes all it takes is a moment to "reset."
