A few new Pigeon games have hit the shelves.  Hope you enjoy them:

If you're looking for mo' Mo fun, check out the Mo' Stuff blog, which catalogs everything that is available from books to toons to shirts to toys.

Speaking of Pigeon stuff, the new animated version of DON'T LET THE PIGEON STAY UP LATE! has just been released for schools and libraries.

I'm happy with this cartoon that brings back animator Pete List, myself as the Pigeon, and Jon Scieszka as the Bus Driver and features a pretty trippy Hot-Dog Party sequence!  There's also an interview with myself on the disk.

School Library Journal just gave the film a starred review, which is great!
