Welcome to my blog, thank you for stopping by. If this is your first time to my blog, it's nice to meet you. If you've been here before, welcome back.

My writing journey has begun. The road will have some bumps and detours. I only hope that the first hill is not too high, and the journey is long.

 The Duckling Gets a Cookie!?
The Duckling Gets a Cookie!?

Words and pictures by Mo Willems

This is such a cute story!  It says so much in so few words.  Even the title makes you wonder whether the Duckling gets the cookie or not.  Gentle hint of kindness and good manners is behind the Duckling and the cookie.  It is a great story to read or to be read to!  Nice work Mo Willems!
