Author Mo Williems on Comedy and Failures in His Books

February 14, 2017

The New Yorker profiles Mo Williems, author of the Pigeon and Elephant and Piggie series.

Williems has written and illustrated over fifty books, more than half of which have appeared on the Times best-seller list for months at a time. He hopes his books will teach young readers to confront problems and be resilient.
