Description

When a bus driver takes a break from his route, a very unlikely volunteer springs up to take his place -- a pigeon! But you've never met one like this before.

Professional reviews

"This whimsical picture book charges young listeners with carrying out the title task, despite being confronted by a pigeon who will do anything to get the wheel of the bus in his wingtips. Author-illustrator Mo Willems's narration makes one imagine a very fun publicity tour. As narrator, Willems offers listeners a pigeon who's urbane and gritty, blue-collared and husky voiced. He sounds like a New York bird as he exhorts, wheedles, and attempts to bribe listeners into letting him have his way. His bellow of thwarted desire will make listeners of all ages laugh, as will Willems's spare (yet incredibly droll) illustrations. This production includes an engaging interview with the author.
