Winner of a 2004 Caldecott Honour Award.
When the driver leaves the bus temporarily, he gives the reader just one instruction: "Don't let the pigeon drive the bus!" But, boy, that pigeon tries every trick in the book to get in that driving seat: he whines, wheedles, fibs and flatters. Will you let him drive? Told entirely in speech bubbles, this is a brilliantly original book.

"A masterpiece of balance and line, colour and tone, as well as being extremely funny...it is rare to find such a sophisticated , yet appropriate, picture book for small children. Very highly recommended."
"For a child, it's a delirious formula: all of a sudden, you're in charge of a bus... Well executed and so smartly layered." The New York Times; "This picture book demands audience participation... Readers will identify with the pigeon themselves!" The Bookseller"
