Don't Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late!

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

PreS. In look and premise, this follows previous books about that persnickety pigeon whose actions resemble those of young children. Kids are invited to make sure that the pigeon doesn't stay up late. But the pigeon has his own ideas on the matter: First of all, I'm not even tired, he proclaims. On each successive page, a balloon of text comes up with ever more reasons why the pigeon shouldn't be coerced into bed (I hear there's a good show about birds on TV tonight. Should be very educational ). Then come the familiar questions: Can I have a glass of water? At one point he drags out his stuffed rabbit (looking suspiciously like Knuffle Bunny), who, the pigeon insists, wants to stay up. But then a yawn overtakes the bird, even though he insists he is just stretching--and, well, you know the rest. Fans of the pigeon will welcome him back and wait with anticipation to see what he can't do next. --Ilene Cooper Copyright 2006 Booklist

(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.

PreS-Gr 2-Oh that pigeon-the embodiment of every kid's secret desires. Now he wants to stay up late. The bus driver, in nightcap and pajamas, warns children not to be swayed by the pigeon's arguments. That doesn't stop our plumed persuader from trying to have his way. The book by Mo Willems (Hyperion, 2006) is the third of the popular Pigeon series. In this production, Willems is the pigeon, while Jon Scieszka pops in for a brief stint as the bus driver. The book, while delightful, is very short. To expand it for this production, it has been animated and somewhat augmented with additional illustrations and a tad more text. Be sure to watch the end which goes off on a fun hotdog/bus/bunny tangent. Children's reactions are part of the audio and will encourage young audiences to participate. An interview with the author provides insights and shows him reading the book to a group of children. Subtitles are optional. The book/CD combination would be a great reading center for kindergarten or first-grade classrooms. This delightful production will have viewers giggling even as they begin to yawn.-Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary School, Federal Way, WA (c) Copyright 2011.

Double agent that he is, Willems reveals proven bedtime-delaying strategies to children and child-wranglers alike. As in his Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!, a fatherly figure cheerfully delivers the title instructions and tiptoes offstage, leaving readers to ponder their baby-sitting assignment. The tantrum-prone Pigeon then marches into the otherwise empty frame, announcing, "First of all, I'm not even tired!" He's in the mood for an all-you-can-eat "hot dog party"--referencing The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog!--and, in another droll product placement, enlists a greenish Knuffle Bunny doll as a tool for persuasion ("My bunny wants to stay up, too!"). From the get-go, the feathered hero is punchy, with heavy gray eyelids, but soon charcoaly half-circles appear under his eyes, and he is overcome by a gargantuan yawning fit that fills an entire spread ("OK, that was not a yawn! I was stretching"). Willems uses voice bubbles and emphatic lettering to suggest the Pigeon's tone of voice, and his solid-color backgrounds progressively dim from soft pink to lavender to a relaxing gray-blue and warm violet, enhancing the growing sense of drowsiness. At last, the hyperactive Pigeon succumbs to slumber, but sleep-resistant and savvy readers will likely plead to read this again. Ages 2-6. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Don't Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late!

Kirkus Reviews


Copyright (c) Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.

The pigeon with Attitude is back, trying every persuasive trick in his arsenal to convince readers to let him stay up late. After his 2004 outing with the hot dog, the presentation reverts to the original direct-address format, the pajama-clad bus driver asking readers to take care of things while he brushes his teeth. The pigeon ("First of all, I'm not even tired!") alternates bombast with plaintiveness as the page backgrounds change from the familiar dusty pink to a deep, restful blue. The inevitable end is never in doubt, as our persistent hero fights off yawn after colossal yawn, increasingly bleary-eyed despite his determination to stay up late. Readers will easily recognize themselves in the pigeon, even as they will delight in sending him to bed--the fact that he sleeps with a stuffed knuffle bunny will add to the intertextual fun. If this offering necessarily lacks the freshness of the original, its wholehearted sense of fun more than makes up for any hint of formula. Sure to provide excuses to stay up late ("C'mon! What's five minutes in the grand scheme of things?") to countless giggling kids. (Picture book. 3-6) Copyright ├é┬ęKirkus Reviews, used with permission.
