Yahoo News has an article: Mo Willems draws on the funny side of failure. It is a sweet and funny article on Willems, author of Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus and Knuffle Bunny, two of my all-time favorite children’s books. Willems captures exactly what children love, pure fun and humor with an ironic twist. They are books that beg to be read again and again and books that simply MUST be shared aloud.
The Wisconsin State Journal has a warm and appreciative article on Kevin Henkes and his marvelous new book, Lily’s Big Day. I am a real Henkes fan from his wonderful mouse characters to Olive’s Ocean. He has a remarkable talent and from what I read here in this article and see in his books a real affinity for children.
