Knuffle Funny Exhibit opens in Orlando!

Knuffle Funny: the art and whimsy of Mo Willems opens at the Orlando Museum of Art tomorrow.

It's a pretty full scale retrospective first organized a year and a half ago that is filled with originals from the Knuffle Bunny books, early cartoons, The Pigeon, and other fun stuff. The Orlando version will feature some new sketches from my pop-up Big Frog Can't Fit In! as well.

If you're in the Orlando, FL area, please drop by.

And speaking of Knuffle Bunny:

here's a great interview with Stephanie D'Abruzzo, aka Trixie in the KC production of Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical. The show closes its sold out run this weekend, but will remount with a new cast in the fall for an 18 month tour.

What's that? You want more interviews, including video from the show? Check out PBS' NewsHour blog post on the show including video of myself, Michael Silversher, & Stephanie talking about the show.
