Adorable Duckling wants a cookie. So she asks for one… politely. And guess what? She quickly gets one—yummy-looking and filled with nuts.

But Pigeon is not happy. He feels like he's the star of this show. Why didn't he get a cookie? Why doesn't he ever get any of the things he asks for?

By asking lots of fun, insistent questions, this engaging book invites young readers to respond loudly and often, and to learn a little about politeness along the way.

About this Series

There are certain things this pigeon wants. Like a hot dog. And a puppy. And to drive the bus. He's got some really persuasive arguments, and he's not afraid to ask (or plead, or moan, or beg) the reader to let him have his way. With simple line drawings and lots of expressive dialogue, bestselling author Mo Willems keeps kids laughing and cheering for more!

Editorial Reviews

"Willems packs his punchy dialogue, punctuation, and cartoon visuals with meaning." —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Just as enjoyable as a read-aloud to a group or as a one-on-one lapsit, it's a pleasure to see Willems at the top of his game, and The Pigeon suitably humbled." —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
