I Will Surprise my Friend! is the first one we spotted at the library. We read it right then and there-- and giggled and laughed out loud. Yes, it is that funny.
In this book, Elephant and Piggie decide to surprise each other by the big rock... they wait and wait on opposite sides of the rock and, of course, Elephant's imagination runs away with him...
He imagines scenario after scenario of horrible things that might have happened to Piggie. The ever practical Piggie thinks Elephant must have went to lunch.
Then they nearly give each other a heart attack! Talon loves the next page when they both fall over on their backs.
Such a cute book. Aren't the word bubbles fun?! And the facial expressions are priceless.
That Mo Willems is a genius!
Talon and I join Leslie and her kiddos in highly recommending the entire Elephant and Piggie series. And the Pigeon series too... hysterical!
If you are fans of Elephant and Piggie, which is your favorite book in the series?
If you haven't met Elephant and Piggie yet, go to the library immediately... read one ... don't laugh too loud and get shushed...then come back and report.
