About the Author

Elephant and Piggie are back, in their tenth mini-drama. In this episode, Elephant''s sneezing convinces him that he is allergic to pigs and therefore must be apart from his friend-forever! Doctor Cat diagnoses the sneezes as a cold rather than an allergy. Excitedly, Elephant rushes to tell Piggie the news, and we see in the last frame and the endpapers that Piggie now shares her friend''s illness. Like a popular TV situation comedy, the combination of the familiar (the expressive comic-book art, the limited vocabulary of only 71 unique words) with the new (a fresh dilemma with the friendship at the core) will please current fans and draw in new ones. Pair with any of the many other easy-reading titles featuring dynamic duos dealing with the ups and downs of friendship.-Booklist
