Overview

Bestselling picture book creator Mo Willems is making his debut in the early-reader arena with the Elephant and Piggie series.

With each text reviewed by an early-learning specialist, these sweet and surprising stories are a breath of fresh air in the early-reader category.

Today I Will Fly! is the funny introduction to these characters. Piggie is determined to fly, but Gerald the elephant knows that's impossible -- right?

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

K-Gr 3 - In these two easy-to-read books, Willems introduces two best friends. Gerald is a slightly stodgy, bespectacled elephant with a stumpy, downturned trunk. Piggie is more daring and whimsical, and, like many friends, the two complement one another. In My Friend Is Sad, Piggie tries hard to cheer her dejected friend. She disguises herself as a cowboy, clown, and a robot, but Gerald doesn't recognize her and is sad because she isn't there to enjoy the fun. Without missing a beat, Piggie points out that he needs new glasses. In Today I Will Fly, Piggie announces her intention to do so to her skeptical pal. In the end, though, Gerald is making adventurous plans of his own. With just a few tweaks of his expressive lines, Willems creates engaging characters. The stories move briskly, with a minimal word count and touches of whimsy throughout. Fans of the author's previous books should check the endpapers for a cameo appearance of his familiar pigeon. These simple, humorous stories will sound just the right note for beginning readers.-Marilyn Taniguchi, Beverly Hills Public Library, CA
