THE PIGEON NEEDS A BATH

by Mo Willems

In stores April 1, 2014
 
 
 

About the Book

The Pigeon really needs a bath! Except, the Pigeon's not so sure about that. Besides, he took a bath last month! Maybe. It's going to take some serious convincing to try and get the Pigeon to take the plunge.
 
First in the series, Don’t Let Pigeon Drive the Bus recently celebrated its 10th birthday! Over the last  decade, The Pigeon books have sold millions of copies and enchanted young readers. The books have received numerous starred reviews, have appeared on many "best of" lists, and have even been inducted into the Indies Choice Picture Book Hall of Fame.

    TOUGH. Knuffle Bunny, I guess, but not Knuffle Bunny Free because I sobbed my head off. I'm also a fan of The Duckling Gets a Cookie?!

    They're all awesome in their own ways but my kids and I are currently in love with "We are in a book". The illustrations are especially hilarious.

    Don't Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late is my 5 year old daughter's and my favorite. We own a few of the Pigeon books, but all of them are paperback and are starting to fall apart from reading them so much, so we would LOVE to win these! We typically read one every night! I am so excited about Pigeon Needs a Bath too and my daughter can't wait to read it together! Thanks for an awesome giveaway for our favorite childrens' books!
