Sunday Link Du Jour: Mo Willems Radio Cartoons
Mo Willems, author of countless outstanding books for children has also been trying his hand at radio cartooning. This is akin to me trying to blog by smell. Not an easy task. Here’s how it works: Mo draws a picture, posts it on the NPR website, and listeners submit captions. They read the best submissions on air before Mo provides his punchline. Entertaining stuff. Click the play buttons below to have a listen to some of the results.
