The pigeon is filthy and smelly. The flies have started to gather, and even they think he needs a bath! But he is going to need a good bit of convincing.
Classic Mo Willems and Pigeon fare will entertain fans. There's a page where the pigeon stalls over getting in the tub by changing the water level and temperature several times, so each picture is a small portion of the page. This is difficult to enjoy as a read aloud to a class (I just read each frame to my students, but they couldn't really enjoy the pictures). It would be more fun to read side by side with a child or for the child to read on his/her own.
