A Hot Man Responds

So, this is a bit dated, seeing I'm playing catch-up, but wonderfully amusing and deserving of mention.

As some of you likely know, Fuse 8 Productions runs a series of posts called the Hot Men in Children's Literature. A while ago she reviewed author Mo Willems - one of my favorites - as one of kiddie lits hot men.

And then he wrote her back.

Check out his letter HERE. Quite the entertaining read. And hey, I think its just pretty exciting to get a letter from Mo Willems.

You can check out his new book HERE entitled "You Can Never Find a Rickshaw When It Monsoons - The World on One Cartoon a Day."

The quick review on the Amazon Site reads:

One June 1, 1990, less than a week after graduating from college, Mo Willems embarked on a year-long trip around the world. Traveling only with a notebook, pen and ink, and one change of clothes, he spent the next twelve months backpacking across more than thirty countries. At the end of each day, he drew the one event that stuck out in his mind the most––from the sublime to the ridiculous.Recently annotated by the illustrator and featuring a foreword from best-selling humor writer Dave Barry, The World on One Cartoon a Day is a unique snapshot of an artist’s coming-of-age as he tries to understand the world around him.

Based on his letter to "Miss Fuse" I'm not sure if I am looking forward to a Wang-Chung-ing pic or hoping it isn't there. However, I am also quite excited by the prospect of a forward by Dave Barry. I've read and enjoyed a few of his books as well.

She also had a new post in the series up yesterday on Don Tate II. He also blogs and recognizes his fellow bloggers.
