Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for beginner readers & reading together My daughter (5) and my son (3) both love this book and I do too. It is short (so great at bedtime!), there is lots of repetition so the children easily pick it up and join in and it also makes it great for beginner readers to read themselves without being obviously designed as a "learn to read" book. It's humorous and endearing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Shared Reading I saw Mo Willems speak at a conference and he indicated that his books are meant to be read out loud, and this is certainly one of my favourite shared reading books. Even my son who can't read quickly picked up on the pattern and volume changes. He eagerly takes on one of the character roles. We both have great fun reading this book together!

Editorial Reviews

Beginning readers familiar with Willems''s books will recognize his distinctive humor and illustrative style in these stories. When Piggie receives her first invitation to a party, she asks Gerald to join her and relies on his advice because he "knows" parties in order to prepare for the big event. The elephant, however, has a tendency to overanalyze, so he prepares them both for any contingency a fancy/pool/costume party. Piggie''s expressive features show her questions about their attire, but the friends set off bedecked in flippers, masks, top hat, pearl earrings, cowboy hat, and evening dress. Imagine her surprise when they find all the other guests as lavishly overdressed as they are. In the second title, Gerald learns that there are worse things than a bird on your head, namely, two love birds, a nest, and three hatchlings. With the help of Piggie, he is finally able to ask them to move, but, as the final page reveals, they have become her problem. Both books use speech bubbles gray ones for Gerald, pink for Piggie to tell the entire story. This feature is a nice touch that facilitates paired/choral readings. The conversation between the friends flows smoothly and allows beginning readers to practice expression as they read. These appealing titles will tickle the funny bones of children and are sure to become favorites.-SLJ
