The Pigeon Needs a Bath!

The pigeon is BACK! And he STINKS! No, really, he actually smells very bad. Except that Pigeon disagrees – as usual! “Smell? What smell? I don’t smell. YOU smell.” Uh-oh. This discussion is just getting warmed up. Pigeon took a bath last month! (Maybe.) The water’s too hot. Anyway, clean and dirty are just a matter of opinion, right?

  • A classic funny story about the irrepressible Pigeon
  • Simple yet hilarious artwork in a bold cartoon style
  • Pigeon’s reasoning will have kids in fits of laughter
  • Mo Willems is a triple Caldecott Honor award-winner
