From the brilliantly twisted mind of #1 New York Times bestselling artist and author Mo Willems comes GOLDILOCKS AND THE THREE DINOSAURS. For the very first time, Willems, who in recent years has become a phenomenon in the world of children’s books, is retelling a fairytale as only he can. With a hilariously arch narrator, a sassy Goldilocks, clever visual jokes, and of course, dinosaurs, this telling feels completely fresh—but with a nod to the classics. It’s a story that will resound just as much with parents as it will for their children.
Mo Willems is one of the most beloved and acclaimed creators of children’s books of this generation. The New York Times has compared him to Charles Schulz and named him “the biggest new talent to emerge thus far in the 00’s”.
In his relatively short career, Willems has won three Caldecott Honor Awards (for DON’T LET THE PIGEON DRIVE THE BUS!, KNUFFLE BUNNY, and KNUFFLE BUNNY TOO), two Geisel Medals (for THERE IS A BIRD ON YOUR HEAD! and ARE YOU READY TO PLAY OUTSIDE?), two Geisel Honors (for WE ARE IN A BOOK! and I BROKE MY TRUNK!) and has garnered countless New York Times bestsellers. As the Boston Globe put it, “Mo Willems is to our era what Margaret Wise Brown was a half century ago. Like Brown, Willems has his finger on the pulse of what interests children most.” The Washington Post, in a recent profile, wrote, “His works, say the people who deeply believe in him, mean something — something both very basic and very complex that has been distilled into cartoons and monosyllabic words.”
Before he turned to making picture books, Mo was a writer and animator on Sesame Street, where he won six Emmys. Mo lives with his family in Massachusetts.
