Saying Goodbye to Elephant & Piggie - The B&N Kids Blog

The same thing happens when I talk about Mo Willems. Easy readers are equal parts illustrations and large, easy-to-read text, and their vocabulary is normally limited to words that appeal to kindergarten to second-grade reading levels. The Elephant and Piggie books boil down the easy reader to its essential components. The lead characters, Gerald the elephant and Piggie the pig, stand in front of a plain white backdrop, acting out their stories with just their body language and bare minimum of props. The earnest duo — like a more affectionate animal version of Laurel and Hardy — communicate through sound effects and large-text word balloons that make it easy for kids to pick out key words and follow the action. There are series of engaging verbal volleys between Elephant and Piggie in each volume, replete with knowing humor, repetition, and facial expressions that really help the young readers understand the inflection and emphasis of the words.
