Review quote

Happy Pig Day!. Willems, Mo (Author), Willems, Mo (Illustrator) Hooray, it's Happy Pig Day! Of course, Gerald the elephant has no clue what this means, so Piggie launches into the holiday's myriad glories. The parties! The dances! The pig foods! The pig games! Everyone crying "Oinky! Oink! Oink!" (That's "Happy Pig Day" in Pig.) But while Piggie cavorts with other pigs, Gerald slinks away, feeling, as many kids sometimes do, the exclusion of not being involved in a particular holiday. Here Willems displays his cunning use of white space: the two friends are so far apart on the page. The good news? Happy Pig Day is for those who love pigs, too. - Daniel Kraus Booklist"

Our customer reviews

Reason for Reading: I love Mo Willems! Piggie is celebrating his favourite day "Pig Day" but when he finds his friend Gerald has left the festivities he goes looking for him to find out what is the matter. Can Gerald the Elephant enjoy Pig Day when he is an Elephant. I don't have a lot to say about this book. It's Mo Willems and Elephant & Piggie! You can't go wrong. Fun story with a little lesson about accepting and participating in others' festival or holidays. Illustrations are what we expect from Willems and these books are going to become classics for future generations. The end pages are their usual fun to look at, watch for Pigeon to show up. I'll just say this book is not quite up to par with most of the others in this series. It's cute and fun but didn't quite hit the hilarious mark this time but, hey!, it's still Mo Willems, so that's not saying much.show more
