When the driver leaves the bus temporarily, he gives the reader just one instruction: "Don't let the pigeon drive the bus!"
But, boy, that pigeon tries every trick in the book to get in that driving seat: he whines, wheedles, fibs and flatters.
Will you let him drive?
Told entirely in speech bubbles, this is a brilliantly original book.
