Horn Book Review

(Preschool, Primary) In this second follow-up to the popular Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! (rev. 7/03), young readers are charged with the responsibility of making sure the groggy-looking bird doesn't stay up late. The pigeon pulls out time-honored excuses (""It's the middle of the day in China!"") and some creative new reasons to stay up, too (""Studies show that pigeons hardly need any sleep at all!""), but his progressively bigger yawns leave no doubt that he will be nodding off soon. Using the earlier books' expressive black line drawings with a subdued nighttime palette, Willems even gives the pigeon his own ""knuffle bunny,"" cradled protectively under his wing as the pigeon finally falls asleep. Story-hour audiences will recognize some of their own bedtime behavior but will greatly enjoy acting the grownup in this comically endearing read-aloud. (c) Copyright 2010.
