We're staying in The Library's children's section for now , with another picture storybook - Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! by Mo Willems .  Published in 2003, this award-winning book features a pigeon who's trying his best to persuade you to let him drive the bus...

Maybe you'll be inspired by the word bus, or the speech bubble or the pigeon -or maybe even a seagull or a robin could stand in....

Here's what The Librarian came up with:

This challenge will close on 7th September .

I hope you'll join The Library.
