BEST-SELLING AUTHOR MO WILLEMS MOST MEMORABLE CREATIONS COME TO EXCITING LIFE IN THIS DOUBLY-DELIGHTFUL DVD COLLECTION!
Since he unveiled his unforgettable conniving pigeon who’ll do absolutely anything to drive a bus or eat a hot dog, Emmy Award®-winner and Sesame Street veteran Mo Willems has become one of the most beloved children’s author/illustrators working today. His best-selling books have won dozens of awards and honors, and The New York Times calls his Pigeon “one of this decade’s contributions to the pantheon of great picture book characters.” Now, children can laugh along Scholastic Storybook Treasures™ brings all the authors’ characters to life and together for the very first time in colorfully and whimsically animated video adaptations with MO WILLEM’S PIGEON AND PALS: COMPLETE CARTOON COLLECTION, VOL 1&2.
Across two discs and sic stories, Willems’ tales – highlighted by “Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!” and “The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog!” — jump off the screen in inimitable fashion! Enhanced by Scholastic’s ever-popular read-along function which helps to strengthen early reading skills, the sure-to-be-treasured collection also includes faithful and award-winning adaptations of other Willems’ best-sellers, including “Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale” (in both English and Spanish) and “Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity”, “Leonardo the Terrible Monster” and “Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed”. Made all the more enriching and engaging, PIGEON AND PALS also includes a multitude of bonus featurettes, as well as an interview with the author himself!
My children are probably the last kids on earth to hear about Mo Willems’ Pigeon and Pals! I feel horrible for unintentionally depriving them of such a great character! I recognized the pigeon, but have never read one of the books or seen any of the DVDs. We were in for a treat! We made popcorn and all sat down to watch together. My kids loved it! They were laughing the whole time and loved the saying “no” to the pigeon. The music throughout was very catching and perfectly fit the animation. We will definitely be checking out some Pigeon books in the near future! I would recommend this hilarious collection to any kids with a big imagination and sense of humor.
Mo Willem’s Pigeon and Pals: Complete Cartoon Collection, Vol. 1&2 is available now on Amazon! It retails for $19.95 for the set and is 113 minutes long.
