Make Way for The Duckling Gets a Cookie: Mo Willems is Coming!

Not to plug my store, but... okay, yes, to plug my store, but also to let you know of an upcoming chance to meet one of the best picture book creators of our era, which I think is a fair trade-off. Brookline Booksmith will welcome Mo Willems to the Coolidge Corner Theatre on Sunday, April 1 at 10:30 a.m. (No, not an April Fools' joke, unless they've got me snookered too.)

Here's the info from the store website:

Sunday, April 1st at 10:30am

Three-time Caldecott Honor winning author of Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!, Knuffle Bunny, and the Elephant And Piggie books and Emmy-winning Sesame Street writer Mo Willems comes to share his brand-new kids’ book. We let the Pigeon take the stage when the duckling asks for a cookie…and gets it!!
