STOP THIEF!


GO, ADAM!
RAH! RAH! RAH!

(we are big boosters of our author and illustrator peeps)

Alexander doesn't remember, of course, but Adam read me the manuscript of his FIRST amazing-incredible-silly-fun book, whilst sitting on the rug in the then-nursery.

Adam was also the first person to read me the first Mo Willems Pigeon book, and it is his quasi-Spanish/Italian-German/Yiddish* voice for the Pigeon that I employ (to the best of my limited abilities) to this day when reading to children.

*before I had ever seen an episode of "Phineas and Ferb," a girl in Ander's first grade class told me that my version of Adam's-Pigeon-voice was very very close to the voice of Dr. Doofenshmirtz.  So there you go.
