I Am Going!

I Am Going! (An Elephant & Piggie Book). Mo Willems. 2010. Hyperion. 64 pages.

This is a good day.

I love Gerald and Piggie. I do. I find Mo Willems' Elephant and Piggie series to be one of the best, one of the funniest series ever. In I Am Going, Gerald, the Elephant, becomes distraught when he learns that Piggie, his best friend, is going. Where is she going? He doesn't know. He doesn't really care where. He just knows that she absolutely, positively can't leave him. Why if she left him, who would he "skip and play ping-pong in a silly hat with?!?!" Can Gerald convince Piggie to stay?

Read and see for yourself!
