When a bus driver takes a break in this hilarious Caldecott Honor-winning picture book, he gives the reader just one instruction: "Don't let the pigeon drive the bus!" But, boy, that pigeon tries every trick in the book to get in that driving seat: he whines, wheedles, fibs and flatters. Will you let him drive? Told entirely in speech bubbles, this brilliantly original and funny picture book demands audience participation!

Don't Let the Republican Drive the Bus!

From the satirical masterminds behind the New York Times best-seller Goodnight Bush (more than 125,000 copies sold) comes this scathingly funny political parody of the contemporary children's classic Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! As any left-leaning parent of small children will tell you, these days it seems like the Republican Party is taking its tactical and ideological cues from a screaming, mid-tantrum toddler. That's certainly how authors Erich Origen and Gan Golan feel: The parallel came into sharp relief as they read the beloved picture book Don't Let Pigeon Drive the Bus! to their own children. In this wildly funny (and uncannily spot-on) spoof, Origen and Golan take on the Republican political machine, represented here by a cartoonish, hyper-conservative vulture, who wants nothing more than to drive the bus (even though he secretly hates public transit); give rides to his top hat-wearing, white male cronies; and run over as many "socialists," environmentalists, and public employees as he can find. Timed to coincide with the 2012 presidential election, this witty and hilarious satire turns over-the-top Republican antics into fun-loving political child’s play. But, like most children’s books and their parodies, it also comes with a liberal dose of warning if we, the reader (…and the people), don’t heed the call: If you don't want to get thrown under it, then please...Dont' Let the Republican Drive the Bus! From the Hardcover edition.

Fiessein will gelernt sein: Leonardo ist ein schreckliches Monster. Aber er kann niemandem Angst einjagen. Weder ist er riesengross, noch hat er 1642 Zähne. Und obwohl er sich schrecklich bemüht, ein bisschen schrecklicher zu werden, es gelingt ihm einfach nicht. Da kommt ihm eine geniale Idee. Er muss einfach das ängstlichste Kind der Welt finden und ihm eine gehörige Gänsehaut verpassen. Und Leonardo entdeckt also seinen Erschreck-Kandidaten: Stefan. Leise schleicht er sich an sein ahnungsloses Opfer heran und zieht erbarmungslos alle Register, bis der kleine Junge in Tränen ausbricht. Doch es stellt sich heraus, dass Stefan gar nicht aus Angst vor Leonardo weint, sondern weil er sich mit seinem Bruder gestritten und keine Freunde hat. Darum fasst Leonardo einen Entschluss: Er will eigentlich gar nicht mehr ein fürchterliches Ungeheuer sein, sondern lieber ein guter Freund für Stefan werden, den er aber hin und wieder schon noch ein wenig erschrecken will. Ab 4 Jahren, gut, Silvia Zanetti.
