Author and illustrator Mo Willems

If you’ve read a book with a child in the last decade or so, odds are high you’ve got at least a passing familiarity with the work of Mo Willems. The cast of characters he’s introduced into families’ lives includes Elephant & Piggie, Knuffle Bunny and – the one who started it all – the Pigeon. Lately, Willems has been working to bring some of those characters to the stage. We talk with him about adapting his work for multiple art forms, how he got started as an illustrator and author, and what he ‘gets’ about kids that some adults don’t.
