Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! is Mo Willems’ hilarious picture book debut, starring one of his most indelible creations-- the ever-demanding Pigeon! It was awarded a Caldecott Honor and instantly became a New York Times Bestseller.
When a bus driver takes a break from his route, a very unlikely volunteer springs up to take his place: a pigeon! But you've never met one like this before. As he pleads, wheedles, and begs his way through the book, children will love being able to answer back and decide his fate.
In his hilarious picture book debut, popular cartoonist Mo Willems perfectly captures a preschooler's temper tantrum.
The Art and Whimsy of Mo Willems exhibition at the New-York Historical Society brings together original art, sketches, and inspirational drawings from Willem's most popular series, plus stand-alone classics such as Leonardo the Terrible Monster and That is NOT a Good Idea!. It displays the efforts behind the effortlessness, the seriousness behind the silliness, and the desire, as Willems says, “to think of my audience, not for my audience.” His ability to crisply weave together life lessons and humor creates artful volumes that speak to all, regardless of size.
