Mo Willems will be back at the New-York Historical Society on Sunday, September 18 for one last appearance before The Art and Whimsy of Mo Willems closes on Sunday, September 25. And this time, he’s bringing friends! At a very special Mo Reads!, Mo and his pals Dan Santat and Laurie Keller will be reading two yet-to-be-released books from the brand new series Elephant& Piggie Like Reading!
In this new beginning-reader series, Elephant and Piggie share their all-time favorite books (the ones they read when they’re not busy starring in their own books!) and the first two titles in the series are THE COOKIE FIASCO by Dan Santat and WE ARE GROWING! by Laurie Keller. Read on to learn more about the books.
About THE COOKIE FIASCO: An Elephant & Piggie Like Reading! Book
Four Friends. Three Cookies. One Problem. Hippo, Croc, and the Squirrels are determined to have equal cookies for all! But how? There are only three cookies . . . and four of them! They need to act fast before nervous Hippo breaks all the cookies into crumbs!
About WE ARE GROWING!: An Elephant & Piggie Like Reading! Book
Growing up isn’t always the EASIEST. Walt and his friends are growing up fast! Everyone is the something-est. But . . . what about Walt? He is not the tallest, or the curliest, or the silliest. He is not the anything-est! As a BIG surprise inches closer, Walt discovers something special of his own!
After the reading, the authors will head to Mo Signs! to sign copies of their brand new books (available for purchase at the Museum Store before they are officially released to the public) and chat with their fans!
