Format: Hardcover
* It's always a cause for celebration when a new Elephant & Piggie is released!
* The way Willems' deft illustrations convey exactly what the character is feeling, without the need for words, is really nothing short of genius.
* In a few short pages, with spare prose, Willems has created a suspenseful story that will have you and your young
reader hooked from start to finish.
* Your young reader should be able to read it by themselves after only a few shared readings.
* For all those pigeon fans out there, check out the end-papers (the inside, back cover of the books). Pigeon makes a guest appearance!
======================================================
In I Broke My Trunk, Piggie and Gerald take on their usual (hilarious) roles. Piggie, in all her exuberance, would like to know how Gerald hurt his trunk. Gerald, in his usual dramatic fashion, tells the story of how it happened. It involves hippos, rhinos and a large piano. It's a CRAZY story! And one that will have you and your young reader rolling around laughing. Mr. Willems just doesn't disappoint! It boggles the mind, just how many books can this genius produce? Next Elephant and Piggie to be released June 2011. Not soon enough.

I am a library aide at my daughter's elementary school and we have not been able to keep the piggy and elephant books on the shelves all year! The kids are constantly asking for them and fighting over who will be able to check them out. I bought three more books for my daughter to donate to the library for her birthday knowing how popular they have been. We read them out loud to all the classes before we put them on the shelves and the kids just love them! They are definitely laugh out loud, gut buster books! I highly recommend them!

Please see my other reviews for Elephant and Piggie...I can't keep writing about the marvels of this series for young to not-so-young children every time a new one comes out and I order it. Though I don't actually read them unless my grandchildren are visiting, I enjoy reading the books almost as much as they enjoy listening or pretending to read them, too. Should mention that I had 34 years of experience teaching K-2 before retiring last year, so I know a great book when I see one!

My oldest two sons were ages 4 and 2 when this book was first released. They loved the book then, and they still love it now, 2 years later. This book has been one of their favorites to read aloud. The text and illustrations are simple enough for preschool-age children to enjoy, but clever and witty enough to entertain grade-schoolers (and adults). I recently read I Broke My Trunk! to my son's 1st grade class and they loved it! They laughed out loud in all the right places and several of them asked me to bring more Elephant and Piggie books next time. It's a good thing we have a few more in our home library, specifically I Am Invited to a Party! and There Is a Bird on Your Head!

Another hit from Willems. My grandson(6) loves this. Willems has a real gift for incorporating great humor and anticipation in his minimalist Elephant and Piggie books - so important for the beginner reader. I have bought all the other titles for my grands and they eagerly await the next one!
