Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! Summary

Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! by Mo Willems

Mo Willems' acclaimed picture book debut celebrates 20 years!
When a bus driver takes a break in this hilarious Caldecott Honor-winning picture book, he gives the reader just one instruction: Don't let the pigeon drive the bus! But, boy, that pigeon tries every trick in the book to get in that driving seat: he whines, wheedles, fibs and flatters. Will you let him drive? Told entirely in speech bubbles, this brilliantly original and funny picture book demands audience participation!

This brilliant story...manages to be beautiful to look at and funny to read, as well as requiring active audience participation. * Guardian *
There is no such thing as a bad Mo Willems book * The Times *
If there's a living creator of children's books who stands a chance of occupying a cultural position akin to a Dr Seuss or a Charles M. Schulz, it's Mr Willems * The New York Times *
