Mo Willems As a child Mo grew up during the 1970s, so he always looked kind of goofy. One time in his school's art class, Mo's teacher told him to stop drawing cartoons all the time. She said big, boring drawings of fruit in a bowl that made people's eyes glaze over were A-R-T, but funny cartoons that made people laugh weren't. She was wrong. Mo had great truble speling when he was a kidd. As an adult Mo once met a man in Egypt who had built a huge sand temple about his life (which mostly consisted of images of him constructing a huge sand temple about his life). He dreamt of creating a one-to-one scale model of the desert. Mo drove a motorcyle in New York for about five years without a single accident. Then he realized he was lucky not to have an accident, so he bought a used Volvo. If Mo had known how cool having a wife and daughter was, he would have got them sooner. As an artist At age eighteen, Mo moved temporarily to London to pursue his dream of becoming a stand-up comic. He quickly established himself and somehow managed to get a spot in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival before returning to America to become a film student. At New York University he discovered animation and quickly became entranced by the ability to make movies without having to beg a crew to help him. Here he discovered the work of Ronald Searle and the UPA animation studio, both of which influenced his deceptively simple, graphic drawing style. After graduating from college, he travelled around the world for a year, returning with ridiculous sideburns. A quick shave later, he returned to New York and became an animator and writer for TV, most notably for Sesame Street (where he won six Emmys for his writing). He then wrote for Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network. Mo's first foray into children's books was the innovative Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!, which appeared on many "best book" lists and won a prestigious American Prize, the Caldecott Honor, in 2004. He has encouraged thousands of children to yell "NOOOOOO!" in libraries. Mo hopes to devote an increasing percentage of his time writing and illustrating children's books. Things you didn't know about Mo Willems His shoe size. Mo once walked all the way across France with his dad (don't ask him why). Mo used to record a weekly Postcard from Brooklyn for BBC radio (kind of like Alistair Cooke's Letters From America only less good). Mo finds rain depressing. It's always raining when Mo goes on vacation. Mo's arch-enemy is PRINT-TOR, the evil spirit of vengeance that makes printing on any computer a near impossibility. Mo doesn't like sweets, but eats bags and bags of candy when he takes long drives. Mo reads really long, really boring books about history and everybody laughs at him, but he doesn't care what they say (much). Did you ever see that really great movie about a pig called Babe? Mo wasn't in that movie. Mo gets very bored very..

News cycles move faster now than ever before, technology allows us to connect with others in seconds and markets crumble faster than ever. Amidst it all we've come to accept - even expect - that events will continue to accelerate and have an ever greater impact: that the next disaster will always be bigger than the last, that more money than ever will be made in business. Welcome to the new world, in which momentum is the driving force behind everything. Drawing on the latest research by economists and scientists as well as real-life examples, Mark Roeder charts the unstoppable rise of the Big Mo. He reveals why momentum was the real driver of the global financial crisis and how this mysterious force is also at work in spheres as diverse as the media, politics and the environment. This provocative book is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the dangers of 'going with the flow' and harness the power of positive momentum.
