Some quick news about Mo Willems!

Our simulcast session at the Mount Kisco Library this afternoon was amazing! Mo is even more charming “in person” than in his books. We had tons of kids there and they all loved it! Plus, they got to ask him a question! — well actually, I asked it for them….see?

Here is Mo, in his Tuxedo, on his special, handmade telephone.
Here I am, asking the students' question.

Yes, that’s my head on the pigeon’s body! The kids loved it!
It was an amazing event! And we learned so much about how Mo writes and illustrates his books! The kids left the library very happy today, and full of ideas for more books Mo should write!

    I never imagined that my five minutes of fame would consist in having my head on a pigeon’s body — but isn’t it great where this career can take you sometimes? Thanks again!
