Mr. Willems is no longer creating Elephant and Piggie books (so sad!) but he is still writing and illustrating!
Nanette's Baguette shares the story of Nanette who loves baguettes. Her mother sends her to the bakery to "get" a baguette from Baker Juliette (see the pattern?!). As she carries home the baguette, the aroma is irresistible so Nanette takes a nibble, then another and another . . . .
A funny ending.
Mr. Willems actually built and handcrafted the scenery out of cardboard and photographed it for the illustrations. Amazing!
My first grader spied several sightings of pigeon in this book!
