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 a single like this before. As he pleads, wheedles, and begs his way via the book, young children will love being able to answer back and decide his fate. In his hilarious picture book debut, popular cartoonist Mo Willems perfectly captures a preschooler's temper tantrum.
Amazon Exclusive: The Pigeon: A Life in Pictures (Click on pictures to enlarge) Back in 1993, I was cartooning for a 'zine. So I suppose it wasn't too crazy an idea. In late 1999, an agent essentially agreed with the Pigeon and rejected my picture book ideas. I began reworking and rewriting. was published in April 2003 and, to my surprise, proved to grow to be popular quite quickly. The Pigeon was now starting to look much more like his mature self. Plus, it made her laugh. The original sketchbook was much longer than the final published volume, but some in the lines had been the identical. I have been producing modest cartoon and story sketchbooks for clients and pals each year considering that then. My wife was working at a school library at the time and had read the sketchbook to her kids, who had enjoyed it. Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! He was right! I began to revise the layout and function with color. She recommended I revisit my sketchbook with an eye to turning it into a picture book. Thankfully, that Pigeon doodle inside the notebook back in 1997 was so insistent. At the finish of 2001, immediately after several dozen rejections since the book was “ unusual,” an editor decided that “ unusual” was a good factor. Born within the margins of a 1997 notebook filled with potential picture book ideas, he was complaining that his ideas were better than mine. In 1998, my sketchbook featured a new character, the Pigeon. Due to a lack of other material, we decided to create the December issue a sketchbook with just my cartoons. To mollify him, I put him in that year's sketchbook.
