That Is Not a Good Idea!
By

Rating
A crafty fox, a butter-wouldn't-melt-in-her-mouth goose and a band of prophesying little chicks ... sounds like all the right ingredients for another hilarious Mo Willems picture book! This is the story of a hungry fox who meets a plump goose and, ooh!, what an innocent looking goose she is. Just look at those big, doey eyes - so trusting! The fox can't believe his luck so he asks the goose to go for a stroll. The goose, with her angelic face, cannot refuse. Suddenly, a little chick pops up warning the protagonist: "That is NOT a good idea!" All too late! This fox is on a roll and next, he invites the goose back to his house tucked away in the deep, dark woods, and ... the goose says YES! "THAT IS NOT A GOOD IDEA!" - now, LOTS of little chicks are shouting warnings! But ... just who are they trying to help? The fox or the goose?

Read and enjoy. -- Nick Tucker * The Independent on Sunday * A great book for sharing with plenty of fun en route to its unpredictable ending. * Books for Keeps * Willems has done it again, this is another winner - a handsome, clever picture book with a fiendish twist. * Inis * An entertaining picture book * ? * The illustrations are simple but appropriate. .
