Elephant and Piggie - WikipediaI was not very familiar with Mo Willems prior to having children. I consider this a tragedy in hindsight. So it will not surprise you to learn that we were very sad to discover that the latest book in the series, The Thank You Book , will also be the last. They are funny! Gerald and Piggie are masters of humor that appeals to children and adults. Using misunderstandings, misheard words, and jokes, Willems infuses the books with serious laughs. The books contain life lessons for kids without hitting them over the head.
