5.0 out of 5 stars The Pigeon Makes You Laugh Out Loud, May 5, 2008
This review is from: The Pigeon Wants a Puppy (Hardcover)
The Pigeon Wants a Puppy is the latest installment of "The Pigeon" books by Mo Willems. This is the first one that we have read, and both my 3 year old daughter and I laughed out loud. The Pigeon sounds like a typical preschooler, wanting what he wants when he wants it, and he wants it NOW.

Most children will recognize themselves in it, causing them great giggles. The Pigeon breaks the fourth wall, and speaks directly to your child. Mine answers him every time. The Pigeon begs, he pleads, he yells, he bargains, he tantrums to get the puppy that he must, Must, MUST have...that is, until he gets it.

This is a truly delightful and engaging story to read out loud to your little ones. It is an excellent length for a bedtime story, and one you will both enjoy. We look forward to reading more. This has very quickly become a new favorite at our house.

I love books that make kids giggle; they make me giggle too. A very cute review, KAREN. I'm sure Devon will enjoy the Pigeon books when he gets a little older. Thanks for reminding me of these books. You sound like such a cool Mom. :-)

I am so glad you like this pigeon story. The Mo Wilhem I like is Knuffle bunny. Great review!

Why not? I think interspecies bonding is great. Some girlfriends of mine have dated rats. <GRIN>
