My granddaughter & I both love Mo Williams books. Highly recommend! They are all very clever & funny - usually with a good lesson slipped in ;-) This one is one of our favorites! I thought I had already gotten this book for her. When I discovered that I hadn't, I ordered it right away. We've been reading Elephant & Piggie books for a long time. We really enjoy the Pigeon books, too. Now that she is 5, she can read most all them herself!

Summary: This is a boo...
Summary: This is a book about being in a book. The loved characters Gerald and Piggie are back and this time they're in a book that is being read by a reader. They are very excited about this. Genre: Graphic Novel Personal Reflection: I like the silliness of Gerald and Piggie as they realize they are being read and they can make the reader say any word they want to. Concept: I like that this book gets kids excited about reading and that at the end of the book where kids would normally put it down and do something else, they are encouraged to read it again.

Elephant and Piggie Books

I recently bought ten "Elephant and Piggie" books for my five year old grandson. He loved the books, enjoying their humor, even laughing out loud at some of the silliness of these two unlikely best friends. He requested hearing the books over and over. What a wonderful experience for both of us.

One of our Favorites!

This is our new favorite book! When I first read this book to my children we laughed and laughed until our stomachs hurt! I made all of my older children read it as well. They rolled their eyes, "Mom, you're making me read a kids' book?" but then they laughed and laughed as well. I just discovered Elephant and Piggie books, and I absolutely love them. They teach excellent values of friendship, sharing, kindness, etc. etc. but even more importantly, they are brilliant and clever; surprisingly fun and truly hilarious. This is also an excellent price on Walmart, and I have started buying extra copies of this book to give as birthday gifts. I highly recommend this and other elephant and piggie books.

Great books.

My 3 daughters ages 2,6,7 loved these book's so much that I had to get the bundle,my oldest daughter would bring it from school and had a hard time to let go of the book.So I looked around in different sites and prices where higher, I found the bundle here at Walmart.com and other books which pleased my girls and my self.

Great Reading for Beginners

I bought this book originally for my son in a book store because it had won a readers award. I read this book once and my son who was 5 at the time loved it and asked for me to read it again. We fell in love with the Elephant and Piggie series and we now own them all and read at least one to three books a night in addition to other books. We love the series and recommend this book and others in the series to other beginner readers. I bought this book as a gift for my son's kindergarten class. I love that Walmart offers a chance for you to pick five books for 25 dollars, that's a deal for hard cover books and it beats buying the series indivdually and it saves you several dollars per book. Shipping to my house was also very reasonable.
