Editorial Reviews

Squirrel plays a big role in Elephant and Piggie's next adventure, I Will Surprise My Friend. He surprises his friend by hiding behind a tiny rock and yelling, "Boo!" The squirrels have such fun that Elephant and Piggie decide to try it too, but alas, surprising each other, when both know a surprise is coming, isn't that easy. As always in this series, the combination of simple text and mischievous art will satisfy beginning readers and leave them eager to polish their skills and move toward more challenging books.-Booklist
