Welcome: A Mo Willems Guide for New Arrivals

Mo Willems

This is YOU. Take a good look. How remarkable it is that you are you.

From Mo Willems, the multi award-winning, New York Times bestselling creator of the Pigeon series and the Knuffle Bunny trilogy, comes a guide for new arrivals, perfect for gifting to new babies and new parents alike!

Using bold graphics, a clever, heart-warming narrative that playfully interacts with the reader and a surprise mirror, this is a one-of-a-kind welcome to the world from one of the best-loved picture book creators of our times.


Welcome: A Mo Willems Guide for New Arrivals by Mo Willems is a guidebook on life for your newborn baby. The illustrations are high-contrast and in the style of yellow street signs – detailed enough, but simple. The book is a perfect one to read to your baby, and it encourages you to do so throughout.

‘Thank you for joining us’, it starts, and briefly explains how you, the reader, have been anxiously awaiting your baby’s arrival. It goes on to hope your baby enjoys their stay and offers some highlights (music! and cats!) before regretting to inform your baby there will sometimes be sadness and ice cream disasters, but it’s ok because there will always be happiness, warm embraces and more ice cream.

I loved this thoughtful and quirky book; it reminded me so much of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy guidebook, I was almost surprised the words ‘Don’t Panic’ weren’t written on the back cover in large, friendly letters. Welcome is perfect for all people with new babies in, or coming into, their lives.
