Happy Pig Day!

Happy Pig Day!
by Mo Willems
Hyperion Books for Children, 2011. 57 pp. Easy reader.

Piggie tells Elephant about a very special occasion--it is Happy Pig Day! Piggie tells Elephant all about the wonderful happenings on this special day and invites several friends to celebrate. However, Elephant becomes very sad because he feels rather left out--until Piggie gives him a delightful surprise ending!

Happy Pig Day! is my new favorite in the Elephant and Piggie series. The books are so wonderful in that they fill a gap in combining humor and simple sentences for beginning readers. This book, in particular, really tickled my funny bone. The ending was wonderful. Hooray for Mo Willems and his books!
