Don’t Let The Pigeon Stay Up Late by Mo Willems
The publisher says… The star of Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! returns in another irresistible tale. Hurrying away to brush his teeth, the pajama-clad bus driver implores readers not to let his feathered friend stay up late. Youngsters are thrust into the role of caregiver as the puerile pigeon attempts to talk his way out of the inevitable, coming up with requests that range from manipulative (“I hear there’s a good show about birds on TV tonight. Should be very educational”) to cajoling (“Y’know, we never get to talk anymore. Tell me about your day”) to classic (“Can I have a glass of water?”).
Eva says… Well, that pigeon is back and of course he wants to do something that the bus driver won’t LET him, which is stay up late, and that bus driver asks US to make sure the pigeon doesn’t stay up late, but you know what? That pigeon keeps coming up with ALL these excuses to stay up. Because he wants to have a HOT DOG PARTY!!
But the whole time he’s trying to stay up, guess what? He can’t stop yawning! So of course he falls asleep, and right in time, too, because that bus driver comes back right after he zonked out.
And so he and his bunny get to have a hot dog party in their dreams.
This one is so funny but what do you expect? It’s the PIGEON! Yeah!
I like ALL of his books!
