Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!

By Mo Willems
Illustrated by Mo Willems

Mo Willems' acclaimed picture book debut in a brand new board book format.

When a bus driver takes a break in this hilarious Caldecott Honor-winning picture book, 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 brilliantly original and funny picture book demands audience participation!

  • The new board book format will bring Mo Willem's favourite Pigeon to a new generation of little hands.
  • The cartoon artwork, drawn with black-crayon lines and set on pastel backgrounds, is strikingly expressive and humorous.
  • Over 200,000 copies sold in the UK and Australia alone.
