Mo Willems is a brilliant artist, and the simplicity with which he does it is absolutely genius. When my better half brings home a load of new picture books to test drive, we usually end up with a slew of duds, a few fun ones, and, if we’re lucky, a genuinely good find. With Mo’s newest book–Nanette’s Baguette–it’s pure genius. The art is bright, playful, and fun, and the story is just as delightful. “There is no greatness where there is not simplicity,” said Tolstoy in War and Peace, and Tolstoy could have learned the lesson well from Willems.
