Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Best-selling picture book creator Mo Willems continues his charming Elephant and Piggie first reader series. The books feature two lovable and funny characters: an optimistic (and sometimes reckless) pig and a cautious, pessimistic elephant. Children who sat on their parents laps to have Pigeon read to them will eagerly take the plunge with these books to start reading on their own. Each book has been vetted by an early learning specialist. These sweet and surprising stories are a much-needed breath of fresh air in the early reader arena.In There Is a Bird On My Head!, Gerald discovers that there is something worse than a bird on your head — two birds on your head! Can Piggie help her best friend?

Synopsis:

Gerald is careful. Piggie is not.

Piggie cannot help smiling. Gerald can.

Gerald worries so that Piggie does not have to.

Gerald and Piggie are best friends.

In There Is a Bird On My Head!, Gerald discovers that there is something worse than a bird on your head-two birds on your head! Can Piggie help her best friend?

I adore the illustrations and characters in Mo Willems books. This dialouge between two clever animals is especially enjoyable. It is so funny and engrossing and also perfect for an emerging reader. My seven year old sons take turns reading the different colored speech bubbles. "There is a Bird on Your Head" builds confidence and makes us crack up too.
