A funny round-about way to learn about sharing. A great read for preschoolers and up. I've read all the 'pigeon' books by Mo Willems and each one is a treat!

A story about sharing. Fun to read. My children liked reading it over and over again. Good story line. Cute clever little duck convinces the pigeon to share his delicious hot dog.

My toddler loves this book. He'd bring it to me and say "hot dog," then have me read it to him. And it's fun for adults to read, too. That's always a bonus.

This is a great book! My 4 years old loves it, he laughs a lot and wants to read 1000 times a day!

So I never watched Sesame Street, but apparently Mo Willems wrote for it. And I'll say that if his writing on the screen is as good as his picture books, I'll happily look up Sesame Street on YouTube. He just has that style.

The whole story is told through dialogue, and it's interesting to note that Pigeon gets speech bubbles while the Duckling's talking is just written out in hovering letters over his round head. This dialogue-only approach keeps the pacing tight and the conflict clear.

The amount of expression and emotion Willems manages to portray in his crayon-outlined line drawings is stunning, marvelous and awesome. Pigeon daintily cocks a foot back in preparation for the delectable first bite of hot dog; the Duckling looks at Pigeon from the corner of his eye with his wingtips folded demurely in the perfect I'm-so-sweet position. And get this -- all the text is written out. Pigeon's speech is in serif font, while the Duckling's dialogue is in sans serif.

Pigeon's tantrum-y outbursts will have readers of all ages grinning, as will the fantastic endpages and witty ending.

A good children's book about sharing. This one introduces the ducky as Willems' new character.
