A New Elephant and Piggie Book!

The new Mo Willems is here!  Oh happy day.  Elephant and Piggie have returned for another adventure - and to impart upon us some nuggets of wisdom about life and friendship.  Isn't that why we love them almost as much as our kids?

Don't forget to Follow One Great Book on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google +  for all the new Elephant and Piggie books.  Mo Willems has a good thing going and he is just going to keep 'em coming.

Title:       My New Friend Is So Fun

Author:  Mo Willems

Target:   Kindergarten - Grade 2

Series:    Yes

What this book is about: 
Best friends Elephant and Piggie are at it again.  This time Elephant runs into Snake.   Apparently Piggie and Snake’s best friend Bat have met and are having a wonderful time together.  At first Elephant and Snake are quite pleased that their friends are having so much fun, but that pleasure quickly turns to worry and they begin to believe that their best friends may desert them.  A quick conversation with Piggie and Bat seems to confirm their worst fears …. or does it?

Why I love this book: 
I have not yet met an Elephant and Piggie I have not loved.  How can this be with over 20 books in the series?  You are a consistent son of a gun Mo Willems … consistently funny!

If you are reading this one aloud, there are plenty of opportunities to ham it up with your audience.  How Mo gets such wonderfully expressive characters with his simple drawings is always an amazement to me and it just adds to the hilarity.

Who this book is for: 
Kids who are working on early readers will love this series.  They can read it solo or read along with you.  

Final thoughts:  
Although I am getting repetitious, another successful addition to a widely successful series.
