[Book Review] That Is Not a Good Idea! by Mo Willems


The best thing about Mo Willem's That Is Not a Good Idea! is its style; it's reminiscent of the dialogue cards of silent movies, and I found that to be a rather charming element. As for the plot, it sets up your standard "don't go with strangers" moral only to subvert it with a plot twist that an adult will see coming from a mile away, given how common it is. And I can't say I'm fond of seeing another book that punishes carnivores for daring to eat.
