The Pigeon Wants a Puppy

Meet arguably the most precocious bird in children's literature, in Mo Willems's The Pigeon Wants a Puppy, the latest in the ongoing saga of The Pigeon and multiple things he'd like to do. In this book the pigeon would like you to give him a puppy. He's wanted one forever (or at least since last Tuesday). He promises to water it once a month. Don't you want him to be happy? You better give him one before he throws a huge temper tantrum! But what happens when the pigeon actually runs into a dog? AAAAHHH!!! "The teeth! The hair! That wet nose! The slobber! The claws! I mentioned the teeth right?" I wonder what he'll want now instead...
