While the reader is exhorted not to let the pigeon drive the bus, the pigeon of course comes up with every persuasive tactic it can think of: "How about I give you a fiver" "I bet your mum would let me" "I'll be your best friend" etc, and finally "LET ME DRIVE THE BUS!!!!!" The reader gets to laugh away their fears while practising saying no repeatedly. Hilarious, but also very useful to work with young ones on assertiveness and saying "NO!!!"
