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.

The Pigeon books are all absolutely hilarious. My six year old son loves them and I love reading them with him. It's fun listening to him read. He reads quite expressively so it really brings across the humor of the book. These are a must have for early elementary children. Read full review
