it was ok

I was expecting good, if not great, things from this new Mo Willems series, but was really not impressed. The content felt more appropriate to a board board than a picture book with concepts that were really dumbed down. I think the characters in Who is That? also cam eout really bland and don't have the outrageous range of expression that Pigeon, Elephant, and Piggie have. It's certainly not bad, but I think that the pacing of the book and the consistant presentation of the pictures from page to page worked against making the joke at the end funny and interesting. I did enjoy the "Blarggie Blaggie" bit though- fun noises are delightful! The message of the book is okay- to make new friends of unfamiliar people, but you don't ever pick a book based on its message much these days. Overall, it was cute, but had the potential to be much, much better, and instead came off as bland.
