Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus By Mo Willems – Top 10 Picture Books number 1.

Children’s Literature describes the plot in this way: “A cute blue pigeon begs the reader to let him drive the bus while the bus driver is gone. He implores, promises, whines, begs, bribes (like I don’t get enough of this from my kids) in order to get his chance. He says things like, ‘I bet your mom would let me’ or ‘I have dreams you know’…. After the bus drives o , leaving the pigeon looking dejected,a semi drives up, the pigeon looks at it, and says, ‘Hey…,’ and the end papers of the book have the pigeon smiling, eyes closed as he envisions himself driving a semi.”
