Why does the Pigeon have to go to school? He already knows everything! And what if he doesn’t like it? What if the teacher doesn’t like him? What if he learns TOO MUCH!?! Ask not for whom the school bell rings; it rings for the Pigeon!
Characteristic Mo Willems. Drama, characters and text with lots of emotion. Clever ending. It’s a helpful title for anyone with a hesitant school-goer.
