Editorial Reviews

In this Theodore Geisel Honor book, Gerald the elephant and his porcine companion Piggie arrive at the delightful realization that they are in a book. With that distinction comes power that makes them giggle: At whim, they can make the children reading them say funny words like "banana"! By with that power comes the realization that, with only a dozen pages left, their book will end. Is there any way to keep the fun going? For some reason, the word "rereading" comes to mind. A book to lift your spirits and spark your mind.
