Review

"For a child, it's a delirious formula: all of a sudden, you're in charge of a bus... Well executed and so smartly layered." The New York Times; "This picture book demands audience participation... Readers will identify with the pigeon themselves!" The Bookseller" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

My son adores this book! He is 1 1/2 and literally cries to have this book above all books to be read for him. Honestly I bought it for me, because many children's books are quite dull and lack humor. On more than one occasion I have brought this book out to show other Mom's and they frantically write down the ISBN code to order this book. Have fun reading it!!!!

This is my favourite kids' book of all time. It's interactive in the sense that the reader can pretend to be the bus driver and the pigeon and the readee can then shout no at the pigeon in response to all his requests. It's funny, brilliantly drawn and my daughter likes it too. Buy it immediately

My 2 year-old loves this book (shouting "No!" every time the pigeon asks to drive the bus) and we all enjoy reading it to him, including my 6 year-old son. It's a simple idea which really works (good illustrations, too).

My sons (5 and 2 yrs. old) absolutely adore this book. They laugh at the pigeon who is just begging to drive that bus. The pigeon reminds them of themselves when they try to get their way... and you should see how they love to be able to yell "no!!!" to the pigeon. The simple drawings are delightful and communicate the pigeon's comic and complex emotions. I read this to a class of 4 and 5 yr olds who laughed and shouted and wanted to hear it again and again! An excellent book that will certainly be adored by parents and children alike.

This is not a book that you can read quietly to your chld at night - it demands interaction from both reader and recipient and once the child has got the gist of what they need to do it is really good fun!

Would certainly recommend it to those who maybe are a bit shy of reading in front of their children as a great way to engage (great for Dad's!)

My 3 yr old loves it and once my 1 yr old is off his Thomas obsession I'm sure he will too.

The illustrations are fabulous, maybe a bit too subtle in some cases for my 3 yr old to get the entire gammet of emotions that pigeon expresses... makes it good for re-reading adults.

You need to really get into the book to get the most out of it, so it can be demanding in that it's not one you can read on auto-pilot. Will have to get some more Mo Williams!

Format: Paperback
amazing piece of literary genius! I am 36 and think this book is awesome. Interactive, alternative humour and a bulwark against twee storylines. I even introduced it my head of department who was immediately won over (although he bought it for his children instead). On a purely critical level, i consider it to be the more superior of all the "pigeon" offerings; however "don't let the pigeon stay up late" is a worthy contender. The series starts to peter off after this one.

My wife bought this and when I read it I looked at her stony faced and suggested we send it back. At first sight it's the oddest thing. Really strange. We tried it on our girls 2 & 4, and they loved it from the start. Laugh out loud, giggly, silly fun. Now they know it word for word, read it back to me and shout "No" at every page. I still don't get it though!
