When Pigeon finds a delicious hot dog, he can't wait to devour it. But then along comes a sly duckling who wants a bite. Who will be the more clever bird?
"...delightful, fast-paced...Clever sound effects fill the air as Pigeon swings from euphoria to exasperation...and ultimagely to a climatic, screen-splitting tantrum...Triumphant strains of clarinet music poay when (Pigeon) finally agrees to share th hot dog with his new buddy..." - Starred Review, Booklist "The exchange between the dramatic pigeon (voiced by Mo Willems) and the cucumber-cool duckling (Trixie Willems) is hilarious. Trixie's voice - childlike yet sophisticated - provides a restrained and charming foil for Willems' larger-than-life pigeon...a fun musical score accents the drama and serves as a delightful backdrop." - AudioFile "...splendiferous and rollicking...with simple yet fun animation...colors and music reflect every change in the pigeon's mood...will tickle viewers both young and old." - Starred Review, School LIbrary Journal
