The Pigeon Presents (and what it's not telling you)
Hey. Wanna see Mo Willems for free? Live in the New York area? Do ya do ya, huh huh, do ya? Happen to be free between the hours of 6 and 7:30 on Thursday, April 12th? Cause here's the deal: Pigeon Man is coming to my neck of the woods as part of the Donnell Central Children's Room's Spring Lecture Series. We also have two other magnificent guests coming, but I'll keep their names under wraps for at least another week or so.
The point is, our Spring Lecture Series is sometimes woefully unattended. These big big name authors come in and we get maybe ten folks to see them, tops. So our cheese cubes go uneaten, our strawberries wilt, and our tasty treats are devoured by our oddly eternally hungry pages (who appreciate it, but... y'know). This year my blog is doing fairly well and I'm hoping that some of you out there in the Apple of Largess will be willing to come on by for FREE and see Mo speak on whatsoever enters his furry little brain. If you've seen him do his shtick before then you know he's like a stand-up comedian. And he's FREE. And there's food. And there's me (though I'll probably be on desk or something). And I'm lovely. Just a peach.
And hey, if that's not enough to whet your whistle (you dry as dirt whistlers, you) then check out Mo's newest website Pigeon Presents. Why is this a good site to visit? Aside from the animation (run, Pigeon, run!), the voices (mostly Mo), and the swooning pigeon there are little previews like....
Knuffle Bunny Too.
Like it? Want to ask Mo about it? *THEN COME TO OUR SPRING LECTURE SERIES!!!!
*To be read in the same voice as when the pigeon screams, "Let me drive the bus."
