Thanks... (and news)

Thanks to you, Elephant and Piggie's Elephants Cannot Dance! is still on the New York Times Bestseller list for it's 7th week at #6. Oh, and here's a recent nice review and Elephant and Piggie have been named "summertime boredom busters".

Huzzah! That's so cool, it's worth dancing about!

If you follow the Pigeon's Tweets, you know that this week was the recording for the animated "The Pigeon Finds a Hotdog!" for Weston Woods Studios.

(Here's a shot of the Pigeon tweeting without my approval at ALA last month)

Any-hoo... the cartoon will be drawn by the insanely great animator and pal Pete List (who directed previous 'toons Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! and Leonardo the Terrible Monster to great acclaim) and stars myself as the Pigeon and Trixie Willems as the Duckling. Great fun was had by all. Expect to see the release of this short for schools and libraries in next year.
