Our favorite Pigeon has really been trying to run things and is even trying to run a new app. The New York Times bestselling author and three-time Caldecott Honor winner Mo Willems, launched his first original app entitled, Don't Let The Pigeon Run This App!, which is inspired by his children's book series and is available on the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch.
To celebrate the launch of this Pigeon-tastic app, New York City media personnel were invited to a luncheon at Magnolia Bakery on the Upper West Side where, along with our children, we were able to test out the app and mix and mingle with the man of the hour, Mr. Mo Willems.
I have been a fan of some of Mr. Willems' books, such as Knuffle Bunny, Knuffle Bunny Too and The Pigeon Finds A Hot Dog! for years now and have shared my love of these masterpieces with my 4-year-old son, who has also grown to love these books. We're huge Mo Willems fans, so needless to say, we were quite excited to meet him, test out this new app, and have Mr. Willems autograph our books. What a treat!
