Mo Willems' new book is a riot.  A young frog named Nanette is entrusted by her mother to get the baguette for the day, and she hurries off towards the bakery.  After a little dilly-dallying, she makes it there and purchases the bread.  It looks so good and is so warm that she cannot help herself and takes a big bite out of it!  Before she knows it, the bread is gone.  Will her mother be upset with Nanette? You bet! But what happens next will be the funniest yet.

— Allison Mengarelli, employed by Book Bin since 1992
