I Will Surprise My Friend! (Elephant & Piggie Books) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mo Willems continues his best-selling 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 I Will Surprise My Friend!, Gerald and Piggie want to play a game and surprise each other'"but the biggest surprise is the one they least expect.
