Genre: Picture Books, Children’s Fiction
Series: Pigeon
Rating: 5/5
Recommend to Others?: Yes


Summary (via Goodreads):
He really, really, REALLY wants one. He’ll take really good care of it! What’s the matter–don’t you want him to be happy? The latest book in the best-selling Pigeon series is the funniest one yet.


My Review:
Fun. Interactive. Surprisingly hilarious. Reading this book was like watching a cartoon for really little kids where the characters break the fourth wall. The main character – the pigeon – addressing the audience in such a way made the story really enjoyable to read – and yes I did respond back to a 2D pigeon. I love how the pigeon uses so few words but has super expressive facial expressions and body language. My favorite line was when the pigeon said, “I’m a puppy-lovin’ pigeon” – such a funny and sassy line. I also like how the book ends with a humorous implication of what is likely to occur after the story is over. A great picture book overall.
