Two Animated Stars!

The fine folks at School Library Journal have just reviewed two of my latest animated films released for the school and library market by Weston Woods and gave both productions stars!

Of Knuffle Bunny Free, with animation by Karen Villarreal, they say:

The narration features the rich vocal talents of Mo, Trixie, and Cher Willems.  A perfect ending to the series.

You can see a clip of Knuffle Bunny Free here.

Of Edwina the Dinosaur Who Didn't Know She Was Extinct, with animation by Pete List, they say:
The result is spectacular.... Children will be delighted.

You can see a clip of Edwina here. 

You can read the full reviews here.

Thanks SLJ!

Both films include interview and bonus animated material not found in the books.  They were great fun to make, and I hope your students enjoy watching the cartoons as much as we enjoyed making them.

Speaking of cartoons, the trade collection (that means for all of you guys) double disk collection of cartoons based on my books, MO WILLEMS PIGEON & PALS, has just won an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum award.  Thanks Oppenheim!  Hope you enjoy the shorts!
