Mo Willems, Tony DiTerlizzi and The Amazing Angela

Whoa. The Amherst/Northampton area is like a magnet for KidLit authors and illustrators . . .

The day after our radio interview and lunch with Jeanne Birdsall and Cammie McGovern, it was time for lunch, again!

This time, we met up with Mo Willems (sitting across from me) and Tony DiTerlizzi and Angela DiTerlizzi. (Yes, they are related. Well, two of the three are related via marriage. I won't say which two, so you're going to have to guess.)

Now, Mo being Mo, meant that he was not on his best behavior. In fact, this was a tragedy in the making . . .

Of course, it's natural that any guy who'd even consider letting a bird drive a bus would be rather cavalier. But lest, you worry, Peepy was unharmed.

That is, until the guy who illustrates The Spiderwick Chronicles and got a hold of her . . .

Luckily, Angela stopped the hijinks by saying, "Say what?" and rescuing my Peep for the clutches of ill-behaved author/illustrators . . .

After lunch, Tony, Angela and I decided that the only logical thing to do would be to go and eat some more. And so, with Peepy tucked safely in my purse, we did just that . . .
