About the Book
When Piggie tells Elephant, "I am going," you can imagine the
thoughts that run through Elephant's head. Elephant, after all,
sees everything in the darkest possible light. "What about me?"
Elephant whines tearfully. "Who will I skip with? Who will I play
ping pong with? Who will I wear a silly hat with?" Piggie remains
resolute. She is going. Elephant declares that he will go, too. But
that doesn't faze Piggie. Elephant pleads Piggie to go
later--tomorrow, next week, next year. Piggie must go now. But
"WHY? WHY? WHY?" cries Elephant. "It is lunch time, Gerald," Piggie
explains. "I am going to eat lunch." Of course the two inseparable
friends have lunch together, making today a good day. Just like
yesterday. Mo Willems, a master at comic pacing, delivers another
perfectly delightful Elephant & Piggie schtick that will have
kids laughing as they learn to read.
From the Publisher
Gerald is careful. Piggie is not. Piggie cannot help smiling.
Gerald and Piggie are best friends.
In I Am Going!, Piggie ruins a perfectly good day by
telling Gerald she is going. If Piggie goes, who will Gerald skip
with, play Ping-Pong with, and wear silly hats with?
Willems''s Geisel Award winning duo continues to delight readers
with their silly shenanigans. Packed full of humor and heart, the
Elephant & Piggie Books are vetted by an early-learning
specialist and early learners themselves, so they''ll be right on
target for new readers.
