Publisher's Summary

When a bus driver takes a break from his route, a very unlikely volunteer springs up to take his place - a pigeon! But you've never met one like this before.

Unnecessary and unwanted commentary at the end

It's an good book and engaging performance. We have several of his books. But this book rolls into a weird, sort of egotistical, behind the scenes interview at the end. It's clearly not for kids so I'm not sure why it's there.

Hilarious and Clever book for the young ones.

A classic knee slapper for the kiddos! Love it. A very interactive book that allows kids to understand consequences of a silly request.

Pointless

If this is a “read along” story it should have said so... this was so short and such a waste of a credit!

Cute story, Unnecessary Author Commentary ending

The story itself is super cute with background music and silly sounds. I couldn't see any of the synchronized images while playing the audio from the cloud player on my computer. I'm going to try it again from my iPhone later tonight and update my review.

The last like 3-4 minutes is the author rambling on about creating the story, or something. I'm honestly not sure, I was looking for help online with the synchronized images, so I stopped listening to what he was saying.

Don't Let The Pigeon Drive the Bus

Only shows book cover . No pictures or words to let children follow with the narration.

Useless w/o the pictures.

A children’s book w/o pictures is utterly useless. Audible, come on! Make it make sense.
