Mo Willems' award-winning Knuffle Bunny has been brought to luxurious life with this huggable plush toy. This larger Knuffle Bunny stands 2 feet tall from head to toe! With embroidered eyes and a velvet nose, Knuffle Bunny has a soft velour, bean-filled body, ears lined with shiny velvet, and a chenille tail. What began as a simple errand to the laundromat becomes a desperate journey as the entire family joins together to rescue Trixie's prized Knuffle Bunny. This Knuffle Bunny is so soft and lovable, we are sure they will never be lost or left behind!
Mo Willems is a three-time Caldecott Honor winner (for Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!, Knuffle Bunny, and Knuffle Bunny Too), he also won two Geisel Medals and two Geisel Honors for his Elephant and Piggie books. His books are perennial New York Times bestsellers, including Knuffle Bunny Free, Hooray for Amanda & Her Alligator!, and the Cat the Cat series. Before he turned to making picture books, Mo was a writer and animator on Sesame Street, where he won six Emmys.
The Art and Whimsy of Mo Willems exhibition brings together original art, sketches, and inspirational drawings from Willem's most popular series, plus stand-alone classics such as Leonardo the Terrible Monster and That is NOT a Good Idea!. It displays the efforts behind the effortlessness, the seriousness behind the silliness, and the desire, as Willems says, “to think of my audience, not for my audience.” His ability to crisply weave together life lessons and humor creates artful volumes that speak to all, regardless of size.
