About the Book

Best-selling picture book creator Mo Willems leaps into the early reader arena with the Elephant and Piggie series. Not surprisingly, the books are hilarious, charming, and speak directly to kids. The books feature two lovable and funny characters: an optimistic (and often reckless) pig and a cautious, pessimistic elephant. Children who sat on their parents' laps to have Pigeon read to them will eagerly take the plunge with these books to start reading on their own. Each book has been vetted by an early learning specialist. These sweet and surprising stories are a much-needed breath of fresh air in the early reader arena.
In My Friend is Sad, elephant Gerald is down in the dumps. Piggie is determined to cheer him up by dressing as a cowboy, a clown, and even a robot! But what does it take to make a sad elephant happy? The answer will make even pessimistic elephants smile.
