Resenhas

I first purchased this book in December for storytime. It was so popular at the library that I gave them my copy to keep and ordered this one as a replacement. The pigeon is always getting himself up to some mischief and this time he is looking to drive Santa's sleigh. Will he ruin Christmas by being naughty or will someone save the day? A fun, easy read for storytime or just bedtime with your child.
