The Duckling Gets a Cookie!? is scheduled for publication in April 2012. Duckling asks for a cookie—and gets one! Pigeon, who has been unsuccessfully asking for things for years, is not pleased.
“The Duckling Gets a Cookie!? is probably my most research-heavy book to date,” said Willems. “As the creator, I had to ask tough questions, like ‘What kind of cookie?’ ‘How would the cookie taste?’ and ‘How would another one of the cookies taste?’ This hard work was not done by an assistant; I have the belly to prove it.”
