About the Author

John Bond (1612-1676) was a Calvinistic puritan divine. In 1643 he became a member of the Westminster Assembly of divines, and in December 1645 succeeded to the mastership of the Savoy. He wrote numerous works, and preached often before the assembly. C. Matthew McMahon, Ph.D., Th.D., is a Reformed theologian, and pastor of Grace Chapel in Crossville, TN. He is the founder and chairman of A Puritan's Mind, the largest Reformed website on the internet for students of the Bible concerning Reformed Theology, the Puritans and Covenant Theology. He is the founder of Puritan Publications which publishes rare Reformed and Puritan works from the 17th century, specializing in the Westminster Assembly. He is also a managing partner at, and the Center for Reformed Theology and Apologetics.


"Slow and steady won't win any races in this sweet story, but it will help you value the walk along the way ... Don't let the pigeon miss the forest for the trees ... Vibrant art and hilarious body language keep eyes moving across every eclectic page. Meanwhile, elegant, even innovative, page designs parcel the action out in the same way that panels would in a comic. Don't be surprised, though, if the lesson to be imparted in this tale is aimed less at kids than at their time-constrained caregivers. (Picture book. 3-6)"
"There are picture books that exist simply to entertain children, and there are those that exist to melt the hearts of adults reading them. Much Too Busy does both beautifully. Immediately, it thrusts readers into a bright, expressive world full of tall buildings and bustling streets that seem crafted from translucent tissue paper cut-outs in jewel tones. Any kid would go gaga over the quirky bystanders and their wacky background shenanigans. It's made better when the deliciously grumpy protagonist Pigeon shows up, who is so busy he gets lost ... This is a charming read for preschooler story hours, for classroom lessons on mindfulness, for encouraging almost anyone to revel in natural curiosity; an incessant push of toward an agenda isn't actually always important in the long run."---- School Library Journal
"Bond's comical, textured illustrations feature a scowling, blue-feathered grump and a wide-eyed, expressive-eared, Frederick-esque optimist. The colorful details are eye-catching and fanciful; it's easy to see why Mouse gets distracted--and why Pigeon sees the light."---- Horn Book Review
