Editorial Reviews

The endless line of moral dilemmas presented by Willems' Elephant & Piggie series continues with this ode to the classic conflict between generosity and greed. Wow, is Elephant ever excited about his ice cream cone! (He is so excited his very word balloons are in cone shape.) But should he find Piggie and give her some before it all melts? Swift changes in text and image size provide much of the humor, though nothing is funnier than Elephant's rationalizing: "Sharing a flavor Piggie does not like would be wrong." Is it even possible to get tired of these books? - Daniel Kraus-Booklist
