Synopsis

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

In his hilarious picture book debut, the acclaimed Mo Willems perfectly captures a toddler's temper tantrum.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!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
