Mo Willems's willful pigeon is back, and this time listeners are asked to make sure he doesn’t stay up late. A litany of pigeonly protestations will sound familiar to those with their own sleep-resisting offspring: "I’m not tired”; “I wasn’t yawning, I was just stretching”; “we never get to talk anymore”; “tell me about your day . . .” This timeless subject will amuse listeners, and Mo Willems’s dramatization of the pigeon trying ever so hard to avoid going to bed is comic and delightful. As the increasingly tired pigeon launches each new argument against bedtime, different solo instruments provide droll-sounding musical commentaries, which are funny in their own right. This production will inspire contented bedtime smiles from parents and children alike. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2011]
