The pigeon is BACK! And he STINKS! No, really, he actually smells very bad...

Smell? What smell? I don t smell. YOU smell. The Pigeon needs a bath! Except, well, the Pigeon's really not so sure about that... Besides, he took a bath last month! Maybe. It looks like it's going to take some serious convincing to get the Pigeon to take the plunge!

    As parents we hear these excuses about not wanting a bath so it is lots of fun. Kids can relate to it easily. Pictures are expressive and cute.
