Readers who will like this book: Young readers who enjoy interactive books will find this conversation with a pigeon fascinating and fun!


Personal Response and rating: 3; Although Mo Willems puts a hilarious spin on learning to hold your ground, keep promises and be responsible through an interactive dialogue with a desperate bird it did not appeal to my interests.
