Mo Willems Gives Props to Kevin Henkes

Here's a profile of Mo Willems, the author of Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! He confesses that his four-year-old daughter loves Kevin Henkes's books.

If you're searching for Mo, he's in Chicago this weekend, at the American Library Association's convention. He's signing books this afternoon and attending the Newbery/Caldecott honoree dinner this evening. (He snagged a Caldecott honor for Knuffle Bunny.)

Original works by Mo, Kevin Henkes, Erich Rohmann (My Friend Rabbit), and Mordicai Gerstein (The Man Who Walked Between the Towers), among others, are part of the exhibit "Fantasy, Facts, and Furry Friends: Caldecott Medal and Honor Books, 2001-2005," at the Art Institute of Chicago (through October 30).
