Wednesdays with David: Don't Let The Pigeon Drive the Bus!

Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!
By Mo Willems
Hyperion Press March 2003
From the library

The Story: The bus driver has to leave the book for just a moment and asks you to watch his bus. But under no circumstances are you to let the pigeon drive the bus. As soon as the bus driver leaves, the pigeon gets to work begging, pleading with, and wheedling the reader to please let him drive the bus! 

Mama opines: I hear about this book and this author all the time, but David and I had never read anything by Willems. It was a fun read - David thought it was really funny to tell the pigeon "No!" every time he tried to convince us that he could drive the bus. 

Thoughts from David: I like it because he doesn't get to drive the bus! He really really wants to...he wants to drive the bus for his whole life! 
Favorite part: The end! The pigeon is going to drive the big truck instead. 


  1. Ha! My daughter and I recently checked this one out from the library. Funny stuff. :)

    1. I'm glad you liked it! Now we have to convince them to take them back, right? "No, we cannot keep this book forever..."
