Pigeon Party!

If you haven't read this book to your kids, may I suggest that you do. This thing is reaching 'Pat the Bunny' status (mmm... I can smell the flowers now) and who doesn't like a talking pigeon? Actually, come to think about it, I don' know, the whole 'flying rat' thing, but this one has a certain je ne sais quoi and you have got to give him some credit for being just so darned persistent. Anyway, here is your chance to see the bird, the myth, the legend on stage. This one is worth the drive to beautiful, downtown Hudson.

From the site:

Pigeon Party!
Big Wooden Horse Theatre, England

Thanksgiving Weekend!
Saturday, November 28, 10 a.m. & Noon

Mo Willems pigeon is back and ready to party! Squeezing all the fun of the first three Pigeon books into one raucous production, this lively show for children 3 and up is full of fun, feathers, laughter and excitement and features original music and lots of audience participation. Performances take place at the Montgomery C. Smith Intermediate School Theatre, Hudson. $5 children, $10 adults.
To buy tickets, go here...or you could just wing it (get it??? wings, pigeons...awesome) and buy them at the door.


  1. And for those that can't make it to Hudson this weekend, there be a Pigeon Party at the Egg in Feb:

  2. You know, I really enjoyed the first book.

    But the following two just felt derivative and formulaic. Although I have to admit, there is a soft spot in my heart for the little duck who wants the pigeon's hot dog.

  3. Graceful J... thanks for the update. We'll probably end up going to the Egg instead since we are out of town this weekend.

    Daniel B., I must be honest, I have only read the first one, but I guess there is only so much you can do with a pigeon. Thanks for your fussy little opinion.
