"Willems packs his punchy dialogue, punctuation, and cartoon visuals with meaning."
Over at Scholastic Parent & Child, they list their 100 favorite children's books ever. Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! is bestowed "Best Read-Aloud" title and clocks in at #28 and Knuffle Bunny clocks in at #19. USA Today has the story.
Yowzer! That's very flattering.
In other fun news, Elephant and Piggie's WE ARE IN A BOOK! has been nominated for a Monarch Award (click master list 2013), the Illinois award where real kids vote for their favorite book. Perhaps this is a time to mention I was born in Illinois? Naw. Anyway, if you're a kid in Illinois, ask your school or library to start voting!
Oh, there's more:
Hooray for Amanda and Her Alligator! has been listed on Capitol Choices best of the year list as well as the Chicago Library's list.
This might be a fun time to play an Amanda and Her Alligator game or get some wallpaper on GoMo.net!
