KNUFFLE BUNNY FREE tour!


*ADDENDUM: I'VE ADDED SUMMARIES OF THE TICKETING/EVENT POLICIES FOR EACH VENUE. PLEASE DO CHECK WITH THE STORE BEFORE YOU COME OUT. LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU!
Trixie and her family are off on a fantastic trip to visit her grandparents—all the way in Holland! But does Knuffle Bunny have different travel plans?

An emotional tour de force, Knuffle Bunny Free concludes one of the most beloved picture-book series in recent memory, with pitchperfect text and art, photos from around the world, and a stunning foldout spread, culminating in a hilarious and moving surprise that no child or parent will be able to resist.

Bestselling, award-winning author Mo Willems has created an epic love story as only he can, filled with the joys and sadness of growing up —and the unconditional love that binds a father, mother, daughter, and a stuffed bunny.



I'm excited to announce the venues for this fall's KNUFFLE BUNNY FREE super-awesome tour. I'll be criss-crossing the country reading the final installment of the Knuffle Bunny Trilogy in addition to the newest Elephant & Piggie adventure, WE ARE IN A BOOK! and pal CAT THE CAT.

I'll also be traveling with this guy:

You'll be able to hug him & take pictures, too! (Knuffle may also be sensitive to flashes too, tho'_

[Mo' info on how to get your paws on an even bigger Knuffle pal to come!]

I hope that you'll come out and say 'hi' if I'm in your area. Please remember to contact the venues to confirm admission policies, signing lines, etc.
