Willems' very dry humor works perfectly in his Elephant and Piggie easy readers. Lots of white space makes these approachable for those learning to read and the format for each page is similar without being boring. Words are all in speech bubbles with the different colors indicating which character is speaking. The illustrations are very simple and yet emotions are clearly communicated to the reader. Today I Will Fly is not my favorite of the series as Gerald appears to be fairly dismissive in the first half before redeeming himself by the end of the book, but this is still miles better than most of the easy reader junk being published. Simply an excellent series of easy readers, here's hoping there will be more in the future!
