Don't Let the Pigeon Finish This Activity Book! Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Pigeon really, really wants to finish this activity book! But that pesky Duckling keeps getting in the way. Oh, and there's someone new on the scene causing all kinds of problems....

Follow the Bus Driver's lead as you write, color, draw, create — even build an airport! — in this fun-filled book starring the Pigeon and YOU!

Review:

"Willems and Codename: Kids Next Door creator Warburton allow readers to really get in touch with Pigeon, Duckling, and other beloved characters in a banter-filled activity book with a hilariously digressive narrative. On each perforated page, the Bus Driver provides instructions for each activity (which include drawing prompts, crafts, games, and more), while Pigeon — no surprise — gently pesters readers ('Now we're done with this activity book, right?'). When an alarmed Pigeon announces, 'We're late for a puppet show!?' readers are instructed to craft a paper airplane, which then necessitates building an airport, naturally. Readers also have a hand in creating an elaborate puppet show (that Pigeon sleeps through), by filling in blanks for an exchange featuring a cranky new character, Mad Cow. The humor snowballs, with kids adding their own jokes to the mix, and the laughs will, too. Ages 3 — up. Agent: Marcia Wernick, Wernick & Pratt."
