Went along to a wonderful talk yesterday given by Mo Willems in the National Library (organised by CBI).  He was so witty and entertaining… that same great humour that comes through in his books.  He also shared his mega-organised approach to creating a book, from start to finish.  He uses an animator’s shedule for all the stages.  He also treats the book as a series of surfaces (cover and endpapers included) right from the start, rather than thinking of it in terms of pages (with the cover stuck on at the end).  Also, he started out life as a scriptwriter for Sesame Street… cool!

Pictured above is my signed copy of ‘Knuffle Bunny Too’…
