As the summer holidays begin, and you're looking for literature to line little stomachs, you are unlikely to find a funnier, jollier, truer book than this on the subject. [...] Willems plays with scale and colour to express the pigeon's feelings in his utterly distinctive illustrations. The words and pictures are as strong as each other. [...] This got a big laugh with my one-boy focus group. * The Times, Children's Book of the Week *
