Fantastic review of Knuffle Bunny Free in NYT, Bestseller and mo' great news!

Today's Sunday New York Times Book Review features a great review of Knuffle Bunny Free.  Among other nice things, they say:
"It is one of Mo Willems's many achievements to be, if not the first, then certainly the best author to present the dread heartbreak of the lost stuffed animal."
"Willems has a Pixar-esque knack for speakiing to parents and children at the same time, without over- or under-estimating either."

Yes, that's me blushing.

A great way to end the week.

But, wait, there's more!

Thanks to you, Knuffle Bunny Free holds on to the #10 spot of the NYTimes Bestseller list for week 11!  KBF also returns to the National Indie Bestseller list at #14 and lands at #3 on the PW list!

Here are some other nice things that have been said this week:

The Examiner puts Elephant and Piggie's We Are in a Book! on their top 10 list for the holidays while the Raleigh News & Observer digs deep and recommends Edwina the Dinosaur Who Didn't Know She was Extinct for their xmas 10, and the fun Quail Ridge Books tells their paper their top 10, which includes City Dog, Country Frog. Richie's Picks blog puts both Cat the Cat Who is That? and City Dog Country Frog on his best of year list.

Finally; Library Media Connection’s Getting Graphic: Best of the Best: 2010 includes We Are in a Book!  It's great to see Elephant and Piggie seen as comics as well as Early Readers!

Huzzah and Phew!

A nice week.

Happy xmas to everyone!
