This past week, NPR has shared three stories in which creatives and their work shift into other mediums, and all three involve literature.

First came the children's book Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in an unusual fashion.

Its author, Mo Willems, joined forces with soprano Renee Fleming to create an operatic performance inspired by Willems's Pigeon character.

Then came an interview with singer-songwriter and literacy activist Dolly Parton about her new children's book, Billy the Kid Makes It Big!.

And conversely, we also have author Neil Gaiman discussing his debut studio album, Signs of Life, which is a collaboration with Australia's FourPlay String Quartet.
