That is NOT a good idea! by Mo Willems

That Is Not a Good Idea!

Overview from Barnes and Noble:

One day, a very hungry fox meets a very plump goose.
A dinner invitation is offered.
Will dinner go as planned? Or do the dinner plans involve a secret ingredient . . . ?
(Don't forget to listen to the baby geese!)
From the brilliant mind of Mo Willems comes a surprising lesson about listening to your inner gosling.

My thoughts:
This was a library favorite for my children this week.  We love Elephant and Piggie, Knuffle Bunny and the Pigeon, so we always check on the shelf to see if there are any other books by Willems for us to check out.  I even read this book at a Cub Scout meeting.  The book is fast paced, there are few words which make it good for new readers, and it always makes someone laugh.  Those chicks sure know what they are talking about, it is not a good idea!
