The Duckling Gets a Cookie!?, Paperback
4 out of 5 (5 ratings)


He has whined, wheedled, fibbed and hollered his way through many books. He wanted to drive the bus, he demanded a puppy, he pleaded for a hot dog party...But now, in a fantastic new title from Mo Willems, along comes Duckling, with bright twinkling eyes and impeccable manners.

She asks for a cookie and what does she get? A cookie, of course! The Pigeon is outraged! Incensed! How could this have happened? HOW is it possible that this duckling gets a cookie?!

Well, because she asked. Nicely.

All of my younger students LOVE the Pigeon books by Mo Willems (follow the pigeon on Twitter, it's adorable and hilarious!). This book is a great addition to the Pigeon series. I love it because it breaks the fourth wall and required some kind of interaction with your audience.

Duckling gets a cookie and Pigeon becomes angry. In this story the two friends learn the importance of politeness and sharing. It's great how this book shows the point of view of both characters in how they feel about the situation. The author, Mo Willems, also uses great descriptive action words that students can use in their own writing for class.

The beloved Pigeon is back for more in this tale and is accompanied by his friend the Duckling. Come join these two on a quest to find out why Duckling got a cookie but Pigeon did not. This duo is sure to make any Willems’ fan laugh out loud with the shenanigans that occur in this book. World famous author, illustrator, and animator Willems is most widely known for his work in the Pigeon series. However, he is also the author and artist for countless other pieces of work and the recipient of the Caldecott Honor multiple times for these works. His lively and colorful pictures add quite a bit of character to these books and attract the attention from children (as well as parents and teachers!) everywhere. This tale of the Pigeon and Duckling is sure to be another treasured favorite!

I think that the only thing that could have made this book better is if the Pigeon would have asked the Duck for the cookie rather than the Duck just giving it. Other than that it was an excellent book on manners and sharing and I liked it.

One of Mo Willems newer books. This time pigeon learns how to share and gets a lesson in kindness. Young readers love the Pigeon books.
