My reluctant reader son just can't put these down! The humor and warmth of visiting again with these two literary friends draws him in and the large clear fonts boost his reading confidence. And like all the best readers, this book requires you to read the words to get the jokes. Just looking at the pictures is not enough. While the illustrations perfectly play up the Gerald and Piggie's emotions, they are not so flashy that they distract emerging readers from the words. Many adults, myself included, forget how frustrated young readers get when they loose their place in a sentence because of the pictures.
