Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The clever-quipping feathered hero of the Caldecott Honor book Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! now stars in a pair of original board books (with the bus driver as well as the duckling from The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog in supporting roles): The Pigeon Loves Things That Go! and The Pigeon Has Feelings, Too! by Mo Willems. In the first, Pigeon introduces various modes of transport including a bus ("Can't you just see me driving one?"), airplane ("Sure beats flapping!") and hot dog-"Hey, what's the big idea? A hot dog doesn't `go'!" to which the duckling provides his own wry reply. In the second, the bus driver prompts Pigeon to demonstrate various emotions. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Everyone's favorite pigeon is back with two titles for the board-book crowd. In Feelings, the Bus Driver tries to get Pigeon to make a happy face. Pigeon, of course, has other ideas. Words such as "happy," "sad," and "angry" stand out in bold colors. Things That Go! presents popular modes of transportation such as a bus, a train, an airplane-and a hot dog ("A hot dog can `GO' right into my belly!") while Pigeon provides colorful commentary. Both books use the same style and color scheme found in the original picture books, with clean bright pages and simple thick-lined illustrations. Pigeon's fans will be excited to see this wacky bird and his friends again.-Julie Roach, Watertown Free Public Library, MA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    First a personal confession: I love, love, LOVE the pigeon in Do

    First a personal confession: I love, love, LOVE the pigeon in Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!. So much so that when I was decorating the baby's room in advance of the baby, I worked a little pigeon into all the paintings. Almost three years later, and I still find it amusing. So when I saw that there was a pigeon board book, of course, I just had to buy it.
    And I did. Second confession: I don't LOVE this pigeon as much, but I still like it. And what's more, my toddler boy seems to prefer it to the original, at least right now. He loves the vehicles and thinks the pigeon is silly. So, considering that the Smidgeon of Pigeon series is not written for me, but is, in fact, written for toddlers, this book and the others are definitely a great investment if you are buying books for toddlers.

    not what expected

    We have two of the pigeon books- DONT LET THE PIGEON DRIVE THE BUS and the HOTDOG one. We love them both and read them over and over. I thought this book would be the same. It isnt. It just has a word or two on each page and if you didnt read the previous two it wouldnt even be funny. It is definetly for a baby.
