Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Starred Review. PreSchool-Grade 3—The incorrigible bird returns in his fourth full-length romp. This time, Pigeon voices another common childhood dream: he wants a puppy. And he wants it NOW. He even promises to take care of it: "I'll water it once a month." He argues his case so forcefully that a puppy appears, but it's more than he expects: "The teeth! The hair! That wet nose!...I mentioned the teeth, right?" So he sets his sights on a different pet. Kids will love this perfectly paced picture book, which offers both the expected (breaking the fourth wall, Pigeon's classic temper tantrum) and a new twist (Pigeon actually gets what he wants? Impossible!). Willems's hilariously expressive illustrations and engaging text are cinematic in their interplay. Maybe kids won't appreciate the genius behind it the way adults will, but that won't stop them from asking for this book again and again.—Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Carroll County Public Library, MD

From Booklist

Pigeon, the stubborn preschool impersonator last met in Don’t Let Pigeon Stay up Late (2006), returns for another encounter with an unseen adult. This time, he’s angling for a puppy, and once again his approach perfectly mirrors a child’s, from calm reassurances (“Oh, don’t worry. I’ll take care of it!”) to sulking to a full-blown tantrum: “I WANT A PUPPY! RIGHT HERE! RIGHT NOW!” Amazingly, his dream comes true, but when a big, slobbery pooch appears in the frame, the terrified Pigeon discovers that, in fact, he may not be a “puppy-loving pigeon” after all. Maybe a walrus is more his speed. Willems skillfully executes the formula that made previous Pigeon titles so popular: minimal artwork that places all the attention on the cajoling little bird, whose words and body language will strike a chord of familiarity with every child. Once again, kids will reach the story’s end wondering what Pigeon will want next. Preschool. --Gillian Engberg
