Happy Pig Day! by Mo Willems
Illustrated by Mo Willems
Published by Hyperion Books
Piggie is beyond excited. She runs to her friend Gerald to share with him the thrilling news: "Today is the best day of the year!" It's Happy Pig Day! Gerald had never heard of such a day, so Piggie explains how you get to sing and dance, eat pig food, and play pig games. She's even brought some of her friends along to celebrate. But how can Gerald, an elephant, join in all the fun? He doesn't look anything like a pig!
Once again, Mo Willems has given us a delightful early reader, full of clever dialogue, overly dramatic line deliveries and tons of fun. Happy Pig Day! is a wonderful reminder of finding ways to celebrate the joy of friendship. I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again: Don't miss the Elephant and Piggie books!
