Gerald is careful. Piggie is not. Piggie cannot help smiling. Gerald can.Gerald and Piggie are best friends.In I Am Going!, Piggie ruins a perfectly good day by telling Gerald she is going. If Piggie goes, who will Gerald skip with, play Ping-Pong with, and wear silly hats with?Willems's Geisel Award?winning duo continues to delight readers with their silly shenanigans. Packed full of humor and heart, the Elephant & Piggie Books are vetted by an early-learning specialist and early learners themselves, so they'll be right on target for new readers.
When Piggie tells Elephant , "I am going," you can imagine the thoughts that run through Elephant's head. Elephant, after all, sees everything in the darkest possible light. "What about me?" Elephant whines tearfully. "Who will I skip with? Who will I play ping pong with? Who will I wear a silly hat with?" Piggie remains resolute. She is going. Elephant declares that he will go, too. But that doesn't faze Piggie. Elephant pleads Piggie to go later--tomorrow, next week, next year. Piggie must go now. But "WHY? WHY? WHY?" cries Elephant. "It is lunch time, Gerald," Piggie explains. "I am going to eat lunch." Of course the two inseparable friends have lunch together, making today a good day. Just like yesterday.
Mo Willems, a master at comic pacing, delivers another perfectly delightful Elephant & Piggie schtick that will have kids laughing as they learn to read.
