Very good. I like how it has the people speaking, like actual people and not just the narrator. I like the pigeon's reactions to all their answers like he has a really mad face as if he was saying "Come on."
The story is about a pigeon, but mimics a child having a tantrum over something they can't have. It tells a fun story, holding your attention. Could be a good spring board for discussion on behavior with a child. Encourages children to interact with the DVD, and tell the pigeon that he can't drive the bus. Some viewers might not appreciate the pigeon going off in a truck at the end. Overall a fun story.
