Mo Willems has just done something that no one has ever done before! We love his work and you should too.

Did you know that Mo Willems used to be an animator and writer for Sesame Street? Or that he was once a stand up comic? If you have ever read an Elephant and Piggie or any of the Pigeon books, Mo Willems’ diverse background makes perfect sense! The brilliant Mo Willems knows just how much to say and when to say it. His playful books are deceptively simple in appearance but extremely sophisticated in their use of perfectly paced, suspenseful stories with characters that pull at your heart strings and make you laugh out loud over and over again. He’s back with a new book, THE PIGEON HAS TO GO TO SCHOOL!, as well his latest creative endeavor as the first ever Education Artist-in-Residence at the Kennedy Center.
