Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!


Don’t Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late! is a children’s book by beloved author Mo Willems. This book, one in a long line of “the pigeon” interactive books, tasks the reader with preventing the pigeon from staying up late. The book starts off with the pigeon’s caretaker asking you to keep the pigeon from staying up late while he goes to brush his teeth. After he leaves, the pigeon starts his hilarious line of excuses about why he should stay awake. Throughout the book, he starts to show signs of being tired, such as yawning and his eyes drooping. Eventually, the pigeon falls asleep, and dreams about eating hot dogs with his friends. The caretaker thanks you for your hard work, and the book ends. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves the pigeon series, or just wants a good laugh.
