City Dog, Country Frog

In spring, when City Dog runs free in the country for the first time, he spots Country Frog sitting on a rock, waiting for a friend. “You’ll do,” Frog says, and together they play Country Frog games. In summer, they meet again and play City Dog games. Through the seasons, whenever City Dog visits the country he runs straight for Country Frog’s rock. In winter, things change for City Dog and Country Frog. Come spring, friendship blooms again, a little different this time.

Mo Willems’ spare, poignant text and Jon J Muth’s expressive watercolors team up to present a reflection on the natural course of friendship—and life—that will resonate with readers of all ages.

Don’t Pigeonhole Me! Two Decades of the Mo Willems Sketchbook

Young readers first met The Pigeon, a beleaguered bird desperate for a shot behind the wheel of a bus, in 2003. Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! went on to sell millions of copies, receive a Caldecott Honor, and spawn additional picture books, apps, games, and even silly bands.

But did you know The Pigeon was born many years earlier in the pages of a sketchbook?

In Don’t Pigeonhole Me! Two Decades of the Mo Willems Sketchbook, readers are given a rare glimpse into the mind of the man the New York Times described as “The biggest new talent to emerge thus far in the ’00s.”  Since he was a teenager, Mo has been creating characters and scribbling ideas in the pages of sketchbooks. In the early 1990s, he started self-publishing collections of his drawings, and The Mo Willems Sketchbook was created. What began as a calling card for his work has morphed over the years from a form of therapy, to an opportunity to explore and experiment, to a gift for friends and loved ones. But these sketchbooks have always been (and continue to be) the well from which Mo draws ideas and inspiration.

Featuring a foreword by Eric Carle and an introduction by Mo, this volume includes all twenty sketchbooks from the last two decades. Don’t Pigeonhole Me! reveals the author/illustrator at his most truthful, most experimental, most grown-up.
