Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
Fans of Willems’ Elephant and Piggie series will not be disappointed by the latest installment. Piggie is back, being her irrepressibly creative and free-spirited self, and Gerald the elephant overcomes his stodgy, inside-the-box thinking to a hilarious conclusion. My coworkers and I nabbed this one as it came into the library on hold for a patron and quickly passed it around. In true Mo Willems style, my favorite part was the aside to adults. 100% Willems, 100% brilliant. It’s always hard to know if he’ll be able to top himself, but it’s safe to say this is my favorite Elephant and Piggie yet!
