When a bus driver takes a break from his route, a very unlikely volunteer springs up to take his place-a pigeon! But you've never met one like this before. As he pleads, wheedles, and begs his way through the book, children will love being able to answer back and decide his fate. In his hilarious picture book debut, popular cartoonist Mo Willems perfectly captures a preschooler's temper tantrum.

OK, if you are a parent and want to laugh til you cry while your child learns to read, this is the book to have. The drawings are hilarious and the story is entertaining, and kids can learn the enjoyment of reading with this book. Our whole family was entertained by Willem's pigeon.
