That's right, we found out in an unveiling at Bryant Park in Midtown Manhattan Tuesday that Mo Willems' latest Pigeon book features our feathery protagonist yearning for a pet dog. Hilarity ensues. Here are more photos from the celebration:
Massive crowd gathers in anticipation of author's appearance ... it's cool to see kids' lit celebrated like a rock concert!
Ambassador Jon Scieszka indroduces Willems and proceeds to be tickled by everything the featured author/illustrator says.
Willems is utterly flabbergasted at the enormous popularity of the Pigeon books.
