K-Gr 2—Persuasive Pigeon is back. He doesnt feel that he really needs a bath—after all, its a matter of opinion. Clean and dirty are just words, right? With a polished technique that logically approaches the problem, Pigeon speaks with a childs voice as he rationalizes his decision while forcefully questioning those who might even suggest that his personal hygiene and the flies buzzing around are not just coincidental. The water might be too hot…not deep enough…too cold…or too wet, but it only takes a mere 30 tiny frames and a dramatic large-font spread before Pigeon grandly displays the myriad possibilities for a happy bird in the bath. Willemss dirt-smudged pigeon is at once clever, garrulous, energetic, and just slightly excitable. Through simple flat-line illustrations, this birds expressions and attitude are easy to discern. Pigeon fans will not want to miss this book, a must add to all libraries, for any reader appreciating the perfect art of persuasion.—Mary Elam, Learning Media Services, Plano ISD, TX

From Booklist
Everyone’s favorite contentious misanthrope is back with a grubby vengeance. Our story begins as a hirsute human in bathrobe and shower cap implores our help: the pigeon needs a bath. The pigeon disagrees and begins his familiar pattern of resisting, stalling, and excusing, but even the flies that surround him can’t bear the filth. Eventually, he is forced to submit, and, after 28 little panels (and one medium-size one) in which he fusses over the tub and its myriad inadequacies, he relents and takes the plunge. And—surprise, surprise—he likes it. “TEN HOURS LATER,” the pigeon is a convert to baths. The details fans have come to expect are all present, from the simple, expressive drawings on blank grounds (though the customary pastel backdrops have been replaced by a variety of muddy browns and greys) to the before-and-after endpapers, complete with a rubber-ducky Easter egg. Pigeon’s many followers will be plenty happy with this latest offering, while parents of reluctant bathers will welcome its surreptitious endorsement. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Thom Barthelmess
