The Lovereading4Kids comment

One of Our Books of the Year 2017 | There’s a surprise twist at the end of this tale of little Nanette, entrusted by her mother to get the baguette from the baker, and no-one will see it coming. Then again everything in this book is unexpected, clever and very, very funny. The story – Nanette goes to buy bread, but can’t resist eating it on the way home – is a hoot, but it’s Willem’s choice of language that makes it so comic and memorable: there are 31 different rhymes for baguette, including – after Nanette has given in to temptation and consumed the baguette – the sublime ‘Nanette is beset with regret’! Pictures match the text for wit and originality – Willem’s mix of cartoon and collage, the way he plays with the design and layout, and the bog-eyed appeal of Nanette all work to make this a stand out picture book. Daft, true and utterly irresistible. ~ Andrea Reece

If there's a living creator of children's books who stands a chance of occupying a cultural position akin to a Dr. Seuss, it's Mr. Willems The New York Times
