mo willems

this kooky series has sparked a lot of fun and reading aloud around here lately...
mo, known for his Knuffle Bunny and Pigeon books,
has paired a neurotic elephant and an insouciant pig as the dearest of friends.
these friends get involved in situations like:

the stories are simple, but not stilted,
sweet, not cloying,
seriously.  my reluctant reader eagerly takes on each new book with 
an interest usually reserved for ice cream.

i dare you; go find yourself a kid, take it to the library to find an elephant and piggie story.
beware, take it home to read...or risked getting kicked out for your theatrics.
