Mo Willems is one of my favorite children's author. He has mastered the ability to teach children important life lessons by using comedy and pigeon's. The reader is being taught an important life lesson, in this case a lesson about the importance of good behavior, and the reader barely notices until the end. In this story, the pigeon is fed up with the duckling because he always gets a cookie and it is not fair. This makes the story relocatable, especially for children who have siblings because they often find themselves in "unfair" situations. But then when the duckling selflessly offers the pigeon his cookie, it becomes a story of sharing and positive behavior. My evaluation is that this story is both creative and funny, but also uses illustrations as much as written word. ( )

I believe all little kids probably love this picture book. It is a silly story of a back and forth conversation between a duckling and a pigeon. Young readers love simple stories that make them laugh and this falls into that category. It emphasizes the importance of using manners as well, which is something all parents should want their children to use. Overall it’s a cute story that is short, fun, and an easy read. ( )

It all begins with a little duckling politely asking the reader for a cookie. After pigeon enters the story and finds duckling with a cookie, the pigeon gets very angry. Yet another humorous pigeon story by Mo Willems. Willem’s uses simplistic pencil art to portray the frustration the pigeon is exhibiting throughout the story. The excessive use of exclamation marks and double page spread of “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!” partner with the images to create a sense of anger. ( )

Book description
Funny little book that clearly demonstrates dialogue.  Duckling "politely" asks for a cookie and gets it.  Pigeon feels cheated; he ask for all kinds of things and doesn't get any of them.  Duckling patiently listens as Pigeon rants and raves about how unfair it is Duckling got a cookie, a cookie with nuts, but he didn't!  Then Duckling says she could just give the cookie to Pigeon.  Wow, Pigeon says how nice Duckling.  Then Duckling simply and politely ask for another cookie, without nuts!
