Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 I Broke My Trunk! Gerald tells Piggie the long, crazy story about breaking his trunk. Will Piggie end up with a long, crazy story of her own?

Once again, Mo Willems creates another hilarious escapade starring the Geisel Award-winning duo. Vetted by an early-learning specialist, I Broke My Trunk! will have readers breaking into laughter left and right!

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 I Broke My Trunk! Gerald tells Piggie the long, crazy story about breaking his trunk. Will Piggie end up with a long, crazy story of her own?

Synopsis:

When Piggie sees Gerald with a big bandage on his nose, she asks, "How did you break your trunk?" It's a long story. First Elephant tried to lift Hippo with his trunk.  "Is that how you broke your trunk?" Piggie asks.  No, there's more. Then Rhino came by, and Gerald lifted him with his trunk too. But even thatisn't what broke Gerald's trunk. Gerald's story grows longer and more ridiculous as the book goes on and is topped off by a silly twist at the end. This may well be the funniest Elephant and Piggie yet!

The best book of the year! Also my favorite Elephant and Piggie book so far. I love how excited both of the main characters get about everything, and that there are hippos, and the idea that an elephant's trunk can be broken. It is a wonderful book for children and adults. Read it!
