Cover Reveal for Moo Moo & Mr. Quackers Present What's Cooking, Moo Moo?

Howdy, Tim Miller Welcome back to Watch. Connect. Read.! What are Moo Moo and Mr. Quackers up to in book 2? 


Tim Miller: Hi Mr. Schu! Thanks so much for having me again. I’m delighted to be back!

In their second book Moo Moo and Mr. Quackers want to find a way to spend a little more quality time together so they decide to open their own restaurant. However much to their surprise, the restaurant business proves more complicated than they expected. When things don’t go as planned, they have to do some quick thinking to find the perfect recipe to save the day!


What comes first: the words or the illustrations? 

Tim Miller: That’s such a good question. I was just speaking with some students about it on a recent school visit. For me the pictures usually come first as I’m trying to work out an idea, and then the words will often spring up in response to what I’m drawing. After that, it turns into a dance between the two as I hone in and nail things down.




What's your favorite meal to cook? 

Tim Miller: I don’t know if it qualifies as a proper meal, but I like to cook omelettes. My specialty is something I call the TKO that I make with Cumin, Cayenne Pepper, Scallions, and Cheddar Cheese. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!



 


Please finish this sentence starter: 

Picture books are a marriage of words and pictures that offer a window of exploration and self-discovery. The words and pictures work independently, but also build upon one another to carry the reader into the realm of imagination, replete with possibility. Not a bad place to visit if you ask me.
