School Library Journal - 09/01/2023 K-Gr 2—Willems's beloved Pigeon is back, and this time he has his sights on Santa's sleigh. Using the same call-and-response formula of Pigeon's previous titles, readers are asked to protect Santa's sleigh from the mischievous pigeon. After Pigeon begs and pleads his case, detailing how Santalike he truly is, he realizes the sleigh is missing a few features. Like a way to make the sleigh "go." Pigeon's excitement for Santa's sleigh is quickly replaced by reindeer fear. Perhaps Pigeon will find another holiday figure to help—perhaps the Easter Bunny! In this holiday-themed book, illustrations and text solely include Santa-specific imagery. Pigeon himself wears a red and green elf hat, Santa's body is visible in the opening pages, and there are images of Christmas packages and decorations throughout. VERDICT A good choice for a Santa-centric and Christmas-specific collection.—Jennifer LaBurre - Copyright 2023 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
