A special guest features in this book, a very clever little duckling who has not tasted a hot dog before. The duckling enters the scene, just as the pigeon is salivating over the hot dog he has just found. Will he manage to outsmart the Pigeon and get his share of the hot dog? Oh, yes...

This book comes highly recommended from my 4 year old nephew George, who finds the pigeon character very amusing. The hilarious tone of the book is set up by the illustrations, also cleverly created by Mo Willems. The writing lends itself to an animated response when reading this story aloud. There are scenes where the pigeon is exasperated with the duckling, this page particularly is a lot of fun to read.

This book is a follow on from the popular “Don’t let the pigeon drive the bus!”
