Follows previous books about that persnickety pigeon whose actions resemble those of young children. Kids are invited to make sure that the pigeon doesn't stay up late. But the pigeon has his own ideas on the matter: "First of all, I'm not even tired," he proclaims. On each successive page, a balloon of text comes up with ever more reasons why the pigeon shouldn't be coerced into bed ("I hear there's a good show about birds on TV tonight. Should be very educational"). Then come the familiar questions: "Can I have a glass of water?" At one point he drags out his stuffed rabbit (looking suspiciously like Knuffle Bunny), who, the pigeon insists, wants to stay up. But then a yawn overtakes the bird, even though he insists he is just stretching--and, well, you know the rest. Fans of the pigeon will welcome him back and wait with anticipation to see what he can't do next.
