Today is the day Nanette gets to get the baguette! Is she set? YOU BET!
"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
From Mo Willems, the multi award-winning creator of the Pigeon series and the Knuffle Bunny trilogy, comes a hilarious new tongue-twister read-aloud about a little girl, Nanette, on a mission to buy a baguette. It's Nanette's very first solo trip to the bakery. But will Nanette get the baguette from baker Juliette? Or will Nanette soon be beset with regret? Set in a meticulously handcrafted-paper-modelled French village, the uniquely vibrant laugh-out-loud world of Nanette's Baguette may be Mo's best creation yet. Get set to "crack" 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 *
