Very cute book--but not my favorite,
This review is from: The Pigeon Wants a Puppy (Hardcover)
I love Mo Willems, and because we are huge "Pigeon" fans, I immediately bought the book without even looking through it. While the book is very cute, and the pigeon is as funny as always, I felt as though this book was not up to the same 5-star rating that I would give "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus" or "Don't Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late" (two books that have been read over 500 times in our house). I kept hoping for something more to the book. Maybe it was because it was missing his trademark 2-page, 8 block spread with rapid-fire "excuses" the pigeon uses to make his case (even my 7 year old commented that it was missing from the book on the first reading). Regardless, it is a very cute book, and if you have a "Pigeon" fan in your house, they will definitely like the latest edition to the series.
