Animated Interview...

Weston Woods' Paul Gagne sits down with Booklist to talk audio books, animated recordings and such. The interview touches on Paul's annual tradition of recording one of my books for audio book and animation.

This year's record (of The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog!) utilized the voices of myself and my daughter, Trixie. This is the Trixter's 3rd animated film; she records every other year as it turns out. After the session (which was great fun), Paul did a quick audio interview with Trixie and I.

I'm looking forward to what animator Pete List (Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!, Leonardo the Terrible Monster, The Ranting Swede, Celebrity Deathmatch) does with our voices....

As an added bonus, Booklist recently reviewed the recently released animated Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!, saying "Thanks to clever animation and valuable extras, this first-rate adaptation of Mo Willems’ hilarious, beloved picture book (2003) delights on every level."
