In this story, Mo Willems also asks you to “watch” the pigeon. He does not want him to stay up late. Just like in, “Don’t let the Pigeon Drive the Bus”, he tries to buy time by asking you a bunch of questions and begging you to stay up late. In every Mo Willems book I read, there is a spread that looks somewhat like a comic and it’s the pigeon giving you excuses of why he should do something. ( )

Terrific - this nearly 57 year old was enchanted ! ( )

The pigeon is supposed to go to bed, but he's not even tired, or so he claims. The pigeon resorts to every possible subterfuge he possibly can to be allowed to stay up. Eventually, thinking about all of the ways to avoid going to bed makes him sleepy, and he finally crashes. Young children would enjoy Willems's story and illustrations. This is a great read-aloud book. ( )

Review/Critique: A pigeon is arguing with himself about why he shouldn't have to go to bed. It is a very silly fantasy book with this child-like pigeon trying to stay up late. ( )
