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. As he pleads, wheedles, and begs his way through the book, 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much fun! Years later we still talk about this book. When on the bus we often joke that the poor pigeon couldn't be its driver. Sign of a good book, when its central message stays with you and your children for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good with four year old As I read the book I thought oh is this all? It's funny but not very long, but my four year old didn't mind that at all. Thought it was hilarious and wanted it read again right away and I loved that he interacted with it as we went along.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hilarious, Fun Book! We got this book for our three year old and she just loves it! She giggles as we read it and even likes acting out the story afterward. I can't wait to read more about the pigeon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from absolutely fabulous Great book on explaining why no may be the correct answer and shouldn't be argued with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book! This had three generations cracking up - the illustrations are fantastic and really simple for a young child. Right up there with my favourite children's book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very funny I use this book regularly as a read-aloud for primary grades while supply-teaching. K-1's especially enjoy shouting "no!" to the pigeon's whiney, pleading and nagging attemps to get permission to drive the bus. Entertaining for both kids and adults.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did you let it drive the bus? I have never in my 14 years found a better kids book that my friends and I liked at our age. It is utterly hilarious and my friends and I are still laughing over the sillyness of it. When asked if she would let the pegeon drive the bus, she and another friend aptly replied, No, but i would let it drive the truck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There are no words... I don't know if you people are being sarcastic but this is seriously THE BEST BOOK EVER! When I went to OSLC Stu Saunders read it to us at the closing ceremonies and I love it so much! If you can't drive the bus, drive the big red truck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I command you to read this book! Read this book. It is my bidding. You might as well read it now, because one day, I, The Baron, will assume control of planet earth and this book will be mandatory. Be one step ahead of the crowd and read it now. Prepare yourself.
