The willful hero of the award-winning DON'T LET A PIGEON DRIVE THE BUS is back and bleary eyed, but unwilling to take bedtime for an answer. It's not too late for a hot dog party,is it? How about a late night show...the pigeon says it's educational! Come on, five more minutes. "What's five minutes in the grand scheme of things!?" Pigeon tries every trick in the book, but can the reader persist and turn the pages to get him tucked in? Ever clever and canny, this may be my favorite Willems of all, really capturing a child's desperation to stay in the alluring late-night mix but fading fast. The pigeon's subtle yawns may be contagious, and the slow, gentle darkening of the pages in this mercifully short bedtime book is just what we need to send our little ones off to dreamland with smiles on their faces...and ours.
