We’re so excited for the opening of Mo Willems’ exhibition Seriously Silly: A Decade of Art and Whimsy by Mo Willems, this weekend! The exhibition opens on Saturday, June 22nd and runs until February 23, 2014, so you all have a nice long time to plan a trip to The Carle to come see the show.
To celebrate, we’re offering a giveaway an autographed copy of one our favorite Elephant & Piggie books by Mo Willems, Let’s Go for a Drive. This Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book is extra special to us at The Carle because our pal Mo wrote a lovely dedication in the beginning of the book. It reads “To Eric, Bobbie, and everyone at the Eric Carle Museum — always worth the drive.”
We hope all of you find that The Carle is worth the drive, or bike ride, or plane fare….and that you come visit us soon! Not only is there so much to see in Amherst, MA, but you can make a great trip for the whole family by visiting all the other amazing destinations in the area. Check out all the great things Hampshire County has to offer – restaurants, bookstores, local farms and fresh food, The Emily Dickinson Museum, ancient dinosaur footprints, and more!
This copy of Let’s Go for a Drive is signed by Mo Willems and has a special Piggie doodle on the title page. In the book Elephant and Piggie plan a road trip and have a long list of important things they can’t leave home without: a map, sunglasses, an umbrella. To enter this giveaway, leave us a comment below telling us what you absolutely MUST bring along when you go on a road trip. Leave a comment BEFORE Noon EST on Thursday, June 20th. We’ll randomly select a winner shortly after. Good luck!
