<3 The Pigeon

Working in a library, you often come across some real literary gems.
Mo Willem's character, The Pigeon, is the most expressive little thing I have ever seen.
The pigeon is the star of a handful of picture books, some of which are titled "Don't let he pigeon drive the bus" and "The pigeon wants a puppy"
Reading them reverts me back to my childhood, lol.

It's interesting how one eye, an eyebrow and two wings is all it takes to convey the pigeon's fiesty, stubborn and quite ambitious personality. Willem's has certainly mastered the art of visual communication.
