The dynamic team behindLlama Destroys the Worldreturns with a laugh-out-loud tale about the dangers…of feeding pigeons!

When you see a coo, you will be tempted to give it a treat.
Coos are adorable, peaceful, kind of silly.
But DON'T FEED THE COO!
If you feed one, they will ALL come...

So beginsDon't Feed the Coos, a cautionary tale that details the fallout when a little girl decides to share some bread with a coo (aka pigeon). From the park to home to the arcade to karate practice, the coos follow the generous-but-foolish girl who didn’t heed the warning. Because when you give a coo a crumb…the entire population of coos will come! But fret not: our spunky little heroine will discover that even the biggest of problems can be solved with a little determination.

In the grand tradition ofIf You Give a Mouse a Cookie,Don't Feed the Coosreminds us that the most disastrous of reactions can come from the most innocent of actions. Jonathan Stutzman and Heather Fox deliver another ridiculous and hilarious story, sure to delight fans ofThe Bad SeedandI Want My Hat Back.

"If it's true that being pooped on by a bird brings good luck, Stutzman and Fox's protagonist accrues some serious great fortune...Coo-coo storytime fun."—Kirkus

"Fox’s graphic illustrations echo the text’s giddy rhythms, with the pigeons styled...as pert, wide-eyed, always-in-profile graphic motifs that skip, flit, and, yes, poo prodigiously across the pages."Publishers Weekly

"Giggleworthy...a silly primer on the dos and don’ts of animal caretaking." — Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Praise forLlama Destroys the World:

"Dessert has never seemed so epic." —Publishers Weekly,Starred Review

"Will make Rubin and Salmieri's fans split their own pants." —Kirkus
