The illustrations alone make this one worth it for me. Seemingly simple, there's enough depth of emotion in the little details that you'll see something new for at least the first 20 times you read it. I recommend attention to Piggie's eyebrows; they are hilarious little guys.
This book is also quite engaging for kids. There are several places where Elephant and Piggie address their audience directly. My teeny listeners looove that part.
I'm working on buying every Mo Willems book out there. I have nine nieces and nephews, and I'm pretty sure that number will only grow. There are a lot of years of reading aloud ahead of me. While I love that they love being read to, I'm going to need the good stuff to go the distance. Mo Willems always delvers.
He found it especially clever when the characters realized that being in a book meant they could make the reader say whatever they wanted. He also loved acting out the HEE HEE HEEs and HA HA HAs, and enjoyed the characters' expressions. The author drew his attention to the fact that books can contain parts such as word bubbles, page numbers, etc.
Really cute and a good purchase that I think he'll enjoy every time he's at Grandma's.
My favorite things about these books is that the style and size of the font which changes as the story progresses really lend me itself to being read out loud “in character” with great inflection and emotion.
