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.

  • "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

        He begs, he bribes, he throws a tantrum - this pigeon teaches kids how funny (and silly) all these tactics are. A winner.
