The Pigeon is 9 Years Old Today!

DON'T LET THE PIGEON DRIVE THE BUS!, which started out as a sketchbook for clients and pals, was first published as a picture book 9 years ago on this date.

The original sketchbook circa 1998
The book, as published (The sticker came later).

Thanks to you, over the past 3,287 days, The Pigeon has been thwarted in many adventures and languages in books, films, toys, apps, and mo'.

One copy of every Pigeon Book in every edition or language so far.

And there's more to come!

Today, I'm starting the tour for THE DUCKLING GETS A COOKIE!?, The Pigeon's 5th picture book adventure.

This summer you'll a GIANT version of DON'T LET THE PIGEON DRIVE THE BUS! will be available:

And this fall you'll get a chance to read and play with DON'T LET THE PIGEON FINISH THIS ACTIVITY BOOK!, a project I've been working on with my pal Mr. Warburton for the last 2 years.

Thanks to you, parents, librarians, booksellers, geeky fans, and KIDS, for all of the awesome support, and remember: Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!
