Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

He really, really, REALLY wants one. He'll take really good care of it! What's the matter — don't you want him to be happy?

The latest book in the best-selling Pigeon series is the funniest one yet.

Review:

"Unforgettably introduced in Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! Willems's id-with-wings reveals that he's wanted a puppy 'forever.... At least since last Tuesday' and swears he's ready to assume the responsibility of pet ownership ('I promise I'll water it once a month'). But he soon discovers that reality, well, it doesn't bite, exactly, but it has daunting teeth — and slobbers. While Pigeon is still a marvel of visual expression, Willems this time out has blunted his character's repertoire of persuasive tactics — and with the pleading dialed down, there's not much else to enjoy. There aren't enough examples of Pigeon's quick-thinking tactical maneuvers or the comic punch that comes from the cumulative onslaught. The core thrill of this series has always been offering kids the chance to experience pleading from the parental point of view — and exercise the awesome power to say no. This time, the response may simply be, 'Whatever.' Ages 2 – 6." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

a friend. He already has a hot dog. And he shared it but now he needs a pigeon friend to make him happy and teach him some manners!! My students love the pigeon books and want me to read them over and over.
