Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2—Persuasive Pigeon is back. He doesn't feel that he really needs a bath—after all, it's a "matter of opinion." "Clean" and "dirty" are "just words, right?" With a polished technique that logically approaches the problem, Pigeon speaks with a child's voice as he rationalizes his decision while forcefully questioning those who might even suggest that his personal hygiene and the flies buzzing around are not just "coincidental." The water might be "too hot…not deep enough…too cold…or too wet," but it only takes a mere 30 tiny frames and a dramatic large-font spread before Pigeon grandly displays the myriad possibilities for a happy bird in the bath. Willems's dirt-smudged pigeon is at once clever, garrulous, energetic, and just slightly excitable. Through simple flat-line illustrations, this bird's expressions and attitude are easy to discern. Pigeon fans will not want to miss this book, a "must add" to all libraries, for any reader appreciating the perfect art of persuasion.—Mary Elam, Learning Media Services, Plano ISD, TX

From Booklist

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are all present, from the simple, expressive drawings on blank grounds (though the customary pastel backdrops have been replaced by a variety of muddy browns and greys) to the before-and-after endpapers, complete with a rubber-ducky Easter egg.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. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Thom Barthelmess

3.0 out of 5 stars Story is great, but quality of the book is lacking
Reviewed in the United States on July 27, 2019
The story is great, however the quality of the book itself is crap. My 11 month old has played with his book only a few times in the tub and the ink is already cracking and wearing down. I added pictures so you can see what I mean. We have other bath books that he's had longer that look way better than this one. Pretty disapointed with the quality.
