What a Deal! An Elephant and Piggie BIGGIE! by Mo Willems


Everyday is a red-letter day for Mo Willems' peculiar pair of pals, an elephant named Gerald and a pig named... Piggie, now appearing together in a collection of their peerless beginning readers which celebrate their exuberant but unusual friendship. Despite his size, Gerald is cautious, careful, and, to tell the truth, a bit of a nerdnick. Despite her petite stature, Piggie is boisterous, adventurous, and endlessly enthusiastic.

Their new collection of best-selling and award-winning easy reader books includes five of their funniest stories, An Elephant & Piggie Biggie! (An Elephant and Piggie Book) includes five of their funniest stories, Today I Will Fly! (An Elephant and Piggie Book), Let's Go for a Drive! (An Elephant and Piggie Book), Can I Play Too? (An Elephant and Piggie Book), and that culinary killer-diller, I Really Like Slop! (An Elephant and Piggie Book).

Only Gerald and Piggie could figure out how to include their friend Snake in a game of catch, or assemble everything they need for a drive--sunglasses, umbrellas for two, a map, their valises--until Gerald notices one thing they forgot--they don't have a car. Only Piggie could prepare her favorite food for her friend--that porcine specialty, a home-brewed bowl of slop--and only the persnickety Gerald would take a sip, despite the flies, just to please his best friend.

This is a five-for-the-price-of-one deal, and no preschooler should have to prepare to be an emergent reader without these hilarious and, yes, heartwarmingly poignant stories of Elephant and Piggy. and their truly BIG friendship. It's a biggie bargain, all right!
