We borrowed We Are in a Book! from the library a couple of weeks ago and loved it. It’s a cracking little story about Elephant and Piggie, who after feeling as though they’re being watched, find themselves “In a Book!”. It’s short and sweet and there’s a healthy dose of humour for both kids and parents. It’s got a bit of a Monster at the end of this book vibe, in that self referential kids book, kinda way. And it’s definitely on the Birthday list for our little ones.
It’s written by Mo Willems who has written a bunch of books, and who, before his illustrious career as a children’s book author and illustrator, wrote and animated for Sesame Street. Wow! How cool is that?!

We loved it! However, the Good lady wife returned it to the library before I had a chance to get a photo of it (read, I forgot), so the image above has been generously donated by The Dorky Daddy. Which is a rad blog that I found after a google image search! On that, how good is google?! I search, the perfect images comes up on page one AND it’s by another dad blogger! Internet, you are awesome, but Dorky Dad, you are even awesomerer, thanks again for the loan of the image!
I only post about stuff that I think is rad! In the interest of full disclosure, the link to the book on this page is an amazon affiliate link, so if you bought the book via that link I would get a kick back. Just sayin.
