DescriptionWhen the driver leaves the bus temporarily, 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 is a brilliantly original book.

Reviews for Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus
This book is an all time family favourite. The story begins with a bus driver asking the reader to keep an eye on his bus while he attends to something and to be sure and not let the pigeon drive the bus. The pigeon, of course, tries every argument and tactic in the book to convince the reader to let him fulfill his dream of driving the bus. It is a simply presented story because it is so well told and cleverly witty that it doesn't need more. Big and little kids will get the humour as we can all relate to having behaved in a similar way to the pigeon at some stage in life when we have been denied something that we want. Having borrowed this book numerous times from the library, we bought it for our daughter who simply giggles every time this book is read, along with mum and dad. Do yourself a favour and read this. by leigh Mckechnie
Worst children't book ever
Complete disappointment. The illustrations are bland and completely repetitive, and the storyline is completely lacking in humour or educational purpose. This is perhaps the only book in my child's vast collection that she has not liked. by Lottos Gutierrez
We love this book...
Our 3 year old toddler, my partner and myself absolutely love reading this book. It's one book that we never tire of reading and we ALWAYS have a giggle. Pigeon is such a character and has us in stitches with his negotiations, scheming, plotting and temper tantrums. We love how involved our son gets with the characters in the book. I know my son will be absolutely delighted to receive some of the other Mo Willems 'Pigeon' series books for Christmas. by Farrah Tate
