Happy Pig Day! by Mo Willems is another success for the Elephant & Piggie series. Although my library system puts this series with our early readers, they are great picture books. It never ceases to astound me what Mo Willems can do with just a few lines. Happy Pig Day! is all about celebrating pigs, and poor Gerald is so sad he can't celebrate because he's not a pig. Piggie of course helps Gerald out and clears up the confusion that you have to be a pig to celebrate pig day. Every new Elephant & Piggie book makes the rounds at my branch. All the staff love to read them before we put them out for the kids!
