I like it when they dress up and when they arrive to the party. ~ Elisamarie, age 7

SUMMARY: Piggie is invited to a party. But she is worried because she has never been to a party before. She asks Elephant to come. Elephant of course will come because he "knows" parties. Elephant comes up with several possibilities of what kind of party it might be and helps them to prepare. It turns out in the end that Elephant did know parties as Elephant and Piggie were perfectly prepared.

ILLUSTRATIONS: As always, Mo Willems' simply drawn and colored illustrations come across beautifully. The facial expressions speak a thousand words, the humor adds zest and laughs and it is all accomplished with two characters on a white background.

REVIEW: This was an utterly delightful book. It is really a comedy sketch of what it takes to prepare for all the possibilities when you don't know what type of party you have been invited to. The ending is priceless. The words are nice and simple for first time readers and the story is interesting and intriguing for pre-readers. This book is very versatile and can be used for anyone within the age range.

Another wonderful Elephant and Piggie book from Mo Willems. Elephant Gerald, who "knows parties," gives Piggie fashion advice for various types of parties so she'll know just what to wear. Funny, sly and endearing. I love Willems' skill with facial expressions!
