Pigeon STILL Wants to Drive the Bus!

On April 1, Mo Willems' Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus turned 10, no fooling. This picture book continues to delight readers young and old with its quirky illustrations and charming dialogue.

About his Caldecott Honor book, Willems says, "I've been asked on occasion if I ever dreamed that the Pigeon would eventually spawn multiple books, activity books, games, toys, apps, animiated films, and fabrics. The answer is, of course I dreamed that. I also dreamed that I would get a flying pony that always had convenient parking spots.  I just never expected it."

Check the book out and see if Pigeon can convince YOU to let it drive your bus. While you're at it, take home some other terrific books Mo has created over the years, such as Knuffle Bunny books, the Elephant and Piggie series, or other stories starring Pigeon.

Join the party on Pigeon's web site, where you'll find games, activities, and more to delight and entertain, just like Pigeon's books.

Also, Mo's web site is a place for tapping in to books, games, and even videos featuring Mo's many friends .
