Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
In this stab at metafiction, Mo Willems depicts his famous duo realizing that "someone is looking at [them]." Gerald worries that a monster lurks outside the pages but Piggie squints and reassures him: "A reader is reading us! We are in a book!"

Joy effectively leads to some clever joking when Piggie figures out how to make the readers say "banana" out loud. More hilarity ensues until an appalled Gerald realizes that the book must end. Older readers will find the friends' antics both comic and thought-provoking: who has control over a book's text? Ultimately, Willems displays his characteristic control of both body language and pacing while challenging readers to engage with his characters. To the book's final question, "Hello. Will you please read us again?", the answer is likely to be: absolutely.

I cannot get enough of this book, no matter how many times I read it. As a librarian this book is priceless to read, even to Grade 6 kids. If I give them the choice of any Piggie and elephant books or another chapter book, they all scream "piggy and elephant"!!!!

As usual Mo Willems writes an incredibly funny book, which is appreciated by kids of any ages (and adults too). Our whole family loves reading all of Mo Willems books.
