What the community says about Don't Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus!
- "It's a pretty funny book -- but in the funny for children way. If you're looking for a book to read with your young child I can tell you that they will be laughing aloud at the pigeon's antics. But it's not the kind of "funny picture book" you would keep on your coffee table for instance."

- "The writer of this book used to write for Sesame Street, so you know that they know how to write for kids. While I wasn't a huge fan of the art design, it really appeals to younger kids. It's fun to see how kids of different ages react to the pigeon's bribes and demands and it definitely makes for an extremely entertaining read.""A bus driver has to leave his bus for a few minutes. As he leaves, he tells the book reader only one thing. Please whatever you do, don't let the pigeon drive the bus! The pigeon does everything he can to get behind the driver's wheel. The question is will you let him drive? "
- "When it comes to picture books that involve transportation, "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!" by Mo Willems is a great example of this genre. In this story, the pigeon tries to get the author to let him drive the bus (against the wishes of the bus driver!) . "
- "Throughout the book (with VERY simple, pale illustrations - not a lot of busyness on each page), the Pigeon looks directly at and speaks directly to your child, using all of the methods of pleading to get your little person to give in to letting him drive the bus that he/she might typically use to try to get his/her way with YOU (i.e."Please?", "I never get to do anything!", "How 'bout I give you five bucks?", "No fair!", etc.) The Pigeon finally resorts to throwing a physical and verbal tantrum... "LET ME DRIVE THE BUS!!!" and then sulks when he's still not allowed to. The driver returns, thanks your child, and then it ends with a big semi-trailer arriving, the Pigeon eyeing it and saying, "Hey...", ready to begin the whole scenario again - as children will do! This is a silly little book where it'll be interesting to watch your child's reaction to having the tables turned! "
