Rating: ** (3-star scale)
Comments:So, do you agree with me that Mo Willems is a genius? He never seems to tire, and each book is as good as the last. While his Pigeon books are my personal favorites, I do like Piggie and Gerald an awful lot.
So, Gerald has a broken trunk and Piggie has an all-consuming curiosity. Gerald’s story, however, is as long as his trunk, and Piggie doesn’t have an awful lot of patience. And likely, neither does the book’s audience. How did he break his trunk? You’ll find out. And you’ll be surprised.
Willems is good at giving an ending a twist. And I think he gets me every time.
Would you recommend this to a friend?Yes. It’s a good easy reader that will keep kids reading.
