Goldilocks And The Three Dinosaurs

This should be interesting. 

*The whole idea of swapping out the three bears with a new cast of characters is great, but, by far, the inclusion of the Norwegian element was a stroke of genius   
*Fun little twist at the very end on how the big lizards could have accomplished their goal
*Instead of listing what human ages it's appropriate for, Mo Willems opts for dinosaur eras

*It's a great concept with some really awesome parts to it, but it just doesn't flow properly 
*The first of the two morals probably sounded better in his head than it does on paper 
*I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure the furniture and fixtures switch places more than people in a game of musical chairs

The newest addition to the Willems catalog delivers everything you would expect from today's most recognizable children's author.  It also demonstrates he can operate outside of the confines of his two most famous franchises (the pigeon series and elephant/piggie books) while still bringing value.  It's a very likable creation but I can't say that I loved it.  One of these days Mr. W is going to get a Buy from me, but not today
