After seeing a squirrel surprise a fellow squirrel, Gerald (elephant) and Piggie (pig) decide to sit on opposite sides of a rock and surprise each other. But as they both move around the rock, they can’t find the other one and begin to worry. This is another hilarious offering from Mo Willems. The animals’ facial features are so exaggerated that kids will know exactly what Gerald and Piggie are feeling. The Elephant & Piggie books excel at presenting simple text in a non-‘babyish’ book. The illustrations will help beginner readers read the text.
