Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Willems and Codename: Kids Next Door creator Warburton allow readers to really get in touch with Pigeon, Duckling, and other beloved characters in a banter-filled activity book with a hilariously digressive narrative. On each perforated page, the Bus Driver provides instructions for each activity (which include drawing prompts, crafts, games, and more), while Pigeon—no surprise—gently pesters readers (“Now we’re done with this activity book, right?”). When an alarmed Pigeon announces, “We’re late for a puppet show!?” readers are instructed to craft a paper airplane, which then necessitates building an airport, naturally. Readers also have a hand in creating an elaborate puppet show (that Pigeon sleeps through), by filling in blanks for an exchange featuring a cranky new character, Mad Cow. The humor snowballs, with kids adding their own jokes to the mix, and the laughs will, too. Ages 3–up. Agent: Marcia Wernick, Wernick & Pratt. (Oct.)

There are so many fun projects in this book. The finger puppets were the first project we made. You will enjoy the activities.

If you love Mo Willems, this activity book is for you. That pigeon captures your attention immediately as you help him complete the tasks. Our grand daughter loved it.

Mo Willems is one of our favorite authors, and the pigeon is one of our favorite characters. My 6 yo got this activity book from Santa, and it has kept him busy, coloring, drawing, cutting, and constructing ever since. I was afraid it would be a gift quickly discarded, especially since he's not big on coloring, but it's much more than a coloring book. I would buy this again, without hesitation, and probably will.
