Book Trailer Premiere: Moo Moo in a Tutu by Tim Miller

Happy Friday! I'm thrilled Tim Miller dropped by to finish my sentences. We discussed the book trailer for Moo Moo in a Tutu, Mr. Quackers, school libraries, and Mark Riddle. I wrote the words in orange, and he wrote the words in black. Thank you, Tim! 


The book trailer for Moo Mo in a Tutu features Moo Moo and Mr. Quackers, the stars of my debut picture book as author & illustrator! Moo Moo, Mr. Quackers, and I are all just a little bit excited about this. We can’t wait to meet readers everywhere!

Moo Moo and Mr. Quackers are a pair of unlikely best friends who do everything together. Moo Moo is an enthusiastic cow who’s always looking for the next adventure, and Mr. Quackers is the most loyal duck a cow could ask for. Thanks to Moo Moo’s frequent bursts of inspiration there’s rarely a dull moment in their lives, and thanks to the fact that Mr. Quackers is always by her side Moo Moo never loses heart when things don’t go as planned.


On April 25, 2017, Moo Moo, Mr. Quackers, and I will celebrate pub day for Moo Moo in a Tutu by kicking off a four-city tour, visiting schools in Miami, Vero Beach, Atlanta, and Fairless Hills. Moo Moo thinks it would be great if we all wore matching tutus for the tour, while Mr. Quackers has suggested we give all the students complimentary worms. We’re still trying to come to a mutual consensus on those points.

School libraries are an oasis of imagination and discovery where students have the opportunity to open doors of possibility.



Mark Riddle and I met for the first time this past November at #nErDcampLI! He traveled from North Carolina (where he’s a beloved librarian and oral storyteller) to NYC to celebrate the release of his first picture book Margarash (Enchanted Lion) that I had the privilege to illustrate. It was wonderful to connect in person after making the book together from afar.

Mr. Schu, you should have asked me what’s a favorite book that made a big impression upon you?




Look for Moo Moo in a Tutu on April 25, 2017.
