Or will Nanette soon be beset with regret? Set in a meticulously handcrafted-paper-modeled French village, the uniquely vibrant laugh-out-loud world of Nanette's Baguette may be Mo's best creation yet. Get set to krack into an irresistible tale you won't soon forget
"Willems places his characters in a cleverly constructed diorama shown on the title page, and Nanette's antics are, oh so expressively portrayed, in brightly coloured vignettes, the whole thing being orchestrated by the variety of fonts used. Extra servings are sure to be the order of the day when this is presented to young audiences - it certainly was with several of mine. In a word, a KRACKER!" Red Reading Hub "Set in a perfectly handcrafted-paper-modelled French village, is an irresistible tale [...]" Primary Times "I laughed out loud, got my tongue in a twist and wanted to share with anyone willing to listen. A delight to read over and again." Armadillo
