About the Author

Mo Willems knows a Good Idea when he sees one. A three-time Caldecott Honor winner (for Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!, Knuffle Bunny, and Knuffle Bunny Too), he also won two Geisel Medals and two Geisel Honors for his Elephant and Piggie books. His books are perennial New York Times bestsellers, including Knuffle Bunny Free, Hooray for Amanda & Her Alligator!, and the Cat the Cat series. Before he turned to making picture books, Mo was a writer and animator on Sesame Street, where he won six Emmys. Mo lives with his family in Massachusetts.

Reviews

"Mo Willems is to our era what Margaret Wise Brown was a half century ago.... Like Brown, Willems has his finger on the pulse of what interests children most. His books are simple, not simplistic; they are clever, witty, various, and surprising."--Boston Globe
"A hilariously fractured fairy tale....Top-notch for group storytime"--Kirkus Reviews
"Willems has delivered his very best work so far--this is a tasty treat for kids already fluent with the original, and for any fan of funny, and everybody will want to read it again and again and again."--Booklist (starred review)
"With a sense of irony (and humor) as sharp as this dinosaur trio's talons, Willems's retelling is a sure bet for audiences who have moved beyond more gently witty fare."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"This is pure Mo Willems, from the many visual gags in the cleanly drawn illustrations and the tight, tongue-in-cheek story line to the endpapers .... Readers of all ages will find much to chuckle about in this wacky retelling."--School Library Journal (starred review)
"On every page, the text winks broadly at readers, first pointing to and then playing with conventions of folklore, narrative voice, literary foreshadowing, and plain old common sense."--Horn Book (starred review)
Praise for HOORAY FOR AMANDA AND HER ALLIGATOR: "Amusing and heartwarming, it will leave Willems's fans totally satisfied."--School Library Journal (starred review)
Praise for HOORAY FOR AMANDA AND HER ALLIGATOR: "Six and a half short stories make up this expertly paced page-turner about a girl and her toy alligator, laced with the kid-centric humor on which Willems has built his career. "--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Praise for HOORAY FOR AMANDA AND HER ALLIGATOR: "The pacing, word volume and wide trim size are all inviting and encouraging, bringing readers close to the cozy friendship between Amanda and her impatient stuffed friend. "--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
