Author Feature: Mo Willems

Looking for a laugh? Try something by the enigmatic Mo Willems. You probably know him for his series about Pigeons driving buses, or the Knuffle Bunny series, or maybe for his spectacular We are in a Book!. But did you know that he used to write for Sesame Street? Or that he once wrote to Charles Shultz and asked if he could take over writing Peanuts once he died?

Curious? You can read more about his Funny Failures, or maybe listen to one of his hilarious interviews.

Or better yet, come in and try some of his books for yourself!


Because why have pigs when you could have dinosaurs?


No seriously, they’re in a book. Just try not to laugh at their banana-tastic antics.


That subtitle, though. Doesn’t that sound intriguing?

There are no pigeons featured in this post, but that’s just because they have their own website here.
