BOOOOORING... None of this stuff is about ME.

Did You Mo?

Did you Mo that... many of Mo’s books have been made into animated films?

Did you Mo that... there are three musicals based on Mo’s books: Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical; Elephant & Piggie’s We Are in a Play!; and Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed: The Rock Experience!

Did you Mo that... on February 17, 2018 The Pigeon Comes to Pittsburgh: A Mo Willems Exhibit will premiere at the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh?

Did you Mo that... Mo started his career as a writer and animator for Sesame Street, where he earned six Emmy Awards?

That is a lot to MO!
