Pigeon rocks! In this tale he has discovered a hot dog, but fast on the heels of his discovery is pesky, inquisitive and ultimately brilliant duckling. Laugh out loud fun, with a good message for kids about sharing. ( )

In this book, the pigeon finds a hotdog and comes across a curious duckling who has never tried a hotdog. At first the pigeon is very selfish and does not want to share, but finally he splits it in half and the duckling gets to try it. The emotion and personality that Willems gives the pigeon’s character will have readers wanting to constantly read about his adventures. ( )

The story line is a little different in this book but we still see the same simple and bolded pictures. He is talking to a duck and not the audience. The duck wanted the pigeons hot dog and the pigeon would not give it to him. The duck is asking him a bunch of questions about how it taste. The two page spread in this book is the pigeon complaining about the duck. ( )

This book is about a pigeon who finds a hot dog, and a little duckling who wants to know what hot dogs taste like because he’s never had one. The pigeon gets increasingly upset because it’s his hot dog, until the ducklong suggests they share it, then they are both able to enjoy it.

Pigeon finds hot dog

But new friend wants it too so

Each get a shared bite.


Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0786818697, Hardcover)

Sesame Street veteran and Emmy Award-winner Mo Willems returns with a fast, funny follow-up to Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!--only this time, the short-tempered pigeon faces his perfect foil in a "special guest star" duckling. In the previous Pigeon book, author and illustrator Willems expertly distilled the escalating emotions of preschoolers all too anxious to get their way. The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog--also a simple and sparsely illustrated story--explores the flip side of that coin, exposing the poker-face persuasive powers of young negotiators. The pigeon just wants to greedily eat the hot dog that he's found: "Oooooh! A hot dog! Yummy! Yummy! Yummy!" Then along comes the duckling, "scooty scoot scoot!" with his insistent questions about hot dogs: "What do they taste like?...Would you say that it tastes like chicken?...Hey, I'm a curious bird." At first, the pigeon entertains the duckling, "Each morsel is a joy! A celebration in a bun!", but then he soon suspects the little bird might have designs on his delicious dog. In the end, of course, the clever duckling gets his way--and half of the hot dog: "You know, you're pretty smart for a duckling." (Ages Baby to Preschool) --Paul Hughes
