Summary
The Pigeon really needs a bath! Except, the Pigeon's not so sure about that. Besides, he took a bath last month! Maybe. It's going to take some serious convincing to try and get the Pigeon to take the plunge.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "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are all present, from the simple, expressive drawings on blank grounds (though the customary pastel backdrops have been replaced by a variety of muddy browns and greys) to the before-and-after endpapers, complete with a rubber-ducky Easter egg.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.--Barthelmess, Thom Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Somewhere between aspirations of locomotion, pining for a puppy, and scrambling to finish an activity book, the Pigeon got pretty dirty. Don't tell him that, though. In enduring Willems style, the Pigeon invites reader participation through questions, provocations, and wild gesticulations. With Pigeon evidently besmeared with soot, it's a classic case of denial: " 'Clean.' 'Dirty,' " remarks the Pigeon while making air quotes. "They're just words, right?" He then points the finger (or wing) at the accuser: "Maybe you need a bath! YEAH! When was the last time YOU had a bath?! Oh. That was pretty recently." After nervously smelling himself and discovering that even the flies hovering around him can't stand how stinky he is ("Take a bath, dude!" says one in retreat), the Pigeon finally relents. At the edge of the bathtub, though, he goes through his share of Goldilocks moments, which are presented in nearly 30 tiny sequential panels: "The water is too hot. Too cold. Too deep. Not deep enough." The Pigeon's cockeyed defiance and Willems's impeccable comedic timing are as fun and frisky as ever. Ages 3-5. Agent: Marcia Wernick, Wernick & Pratt.
