On April Fool's Day, exactly 11 years after his first children's book was published, that silly pigeon is back, but this time - he needs a bath! Except, the Pigeon's not so sure about that. Besides, he took a bath last month! Maybe. It's going to take some serious convincing to get the Pigeon to take the plunge. Mo joined us to talk about The Pigeon Needs a Bath and much more, including why he thinks families need to take the time to draw together!
