Unclear on the Concept

While we were in Louisiana for Christmas (and I really need to finish that recap), Celeste picked up a copy of Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus at the library. Since we've been back, she's checked it out from our library several times and when she sees pigeons (Columba livia), she mentions them wanting to drive buses.

However, Celeste seems to miss the point of the book. By page 3, when the pigeon first says "Hey, can I drive the bus?" Celeste enthusiastically gives her consent. If the book played out from there, by page 6, there would be a horrible crash and burnt feathers amidst the carnage.
