Book Description

Sept. 14 2010 Elephant & Piggie Books
Gerald is careful. Piggie is not. Piggie cannot help smiling. Gerald can.

Gerald and Piggie are best friends.

In We Are in a Book! Gerald and Piggie discover the joy of being read. But what will happen when the book ends?

Using vocabulary perfect for beginning readers (and vetted by an early-learning specialist), Mo Willems has crafted a mind-bending story that is even more interactive than previous Elephant & Piggie adventures. Fans of the Geisel Award-winning duo won't be able to put this book down--literally!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Much Perfect Sept. 29 2010
By John X Crimmins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I brought this book home from the library last week, as I do with everything that Mo Willems writes. My oldest, a 1st grader, read the book aloud and laughed repeatedly at the silliness. Admittedly, I got to hear "Banana!" a lot more than I really wanted that night, but that's the price you pay for quality fiction.

My youngest, a toddler, curled up with the book on the floor and leafed through it again and again, giggling hysterically at the pictures. He particularly loves Piggie leaning forward to stare at the reader, but the illustrations, so clear and expressive and silly, are all wonderful.

And me, I'm really looking forward to using the book in a storytime next week. Interactive books like this, like There Are Cats in This Book or The Monster at the End of this Book, are perfect selections to read to groups of preschoolers. They love being able to become part of the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius fun Oct. 2 2010
By Diana - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
We are big fans of Gerald and Piggie, and of Mo Willems in general, and this is a pitch perfect book for both kids and adults. With what is probably a nod to Grover in the immortal classic The Monster at the End of this Book (Sesame Street) (Big Little Golden Book), Gerald and Piggie practically jump from the page to engage the reader. I read this book during a (child free) stroll in the bookstore, and basically made a fool of myself laughing uncontrollably, but the book is such a delightful joy that I couldn't have cared less. Don't hesitate, Readers - this is a classic for your permanent library. Thanks, Mo!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pundit David Plotz's off-the-cuff review Dec 2 2011
By PH-50-NC - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
"....I think [We Are In a Book] is perhaps the most profound document of our time. It is about Elephant and Piggy, as they are 1.) sitting in the book and realizing that you are reading their book, 2.) watching you read the book, and then 3.) realizing that the book will come to an end. And getting increasingly anxious about what it would mean for the book to come to an end, what will happen to them. It's a meditation about textuality, and mostly, it's a meditation about death. It is about the consciousness of death. It is spooky--I read this book once, briefly, about four days ago at a friend's house, and I haven't been able to get it out of my head. It is a cheerful, and loving, and magnificent piece of art, and yet, at the same time, it will haunt your dreams. I strongly suggest you get it....it's like [The Monster at the End of This Book], but it's more profound than that. I mean, that's a fantastic book, don't get me wrong, but the Elephant and Piggy book is...really, is grim." -David Plotz, Slate.com's Political Gabfest, 2011/12/02.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Childrens book ever!!!! Oct. 13 2010
By batkim12 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is the best kids book I've ever read. Mo Willems is always awesome but this one goes above and beyond. It may help to have read a few other Elephant and Piggie books to get to know the characters first, but even if you've never seen another, its fantastic. Lots of breaking the forth wall going on in here and its done amazingly fantastically well. All the Elephant and Piggie books are fantastic, My kids love them and so do my husband and I.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Over and Over Again June 26 2011
By S. Rinder - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My 3-year-old grandson loves this book and so do I. As always with Mo Willems, the illustrations are delightful; Piggie looking back at you as you read the book is hilarious. The trick Elephant plays on the reader never fails to delight my grandson. (Who knew the work "Banana" was so funny?) And then it gets even better as Elephant realizes it is almost over. This book is one clever twist after another.

The best part is that my grandson started to act out the story, crying out "I have more to give!" over breakfast. The world is a better place with Mo Willems in it.
