Piggie really likes slop. She likes it so much, she wants Gerald to try some! But can Gerald find the courage to do it? Or will the smell alone be too much to handle?

I know, I know, I'm reviewing yet another Elephant & Piggie book. But each one is unique! This time, it's the illustrations, really. The story is simple enough, and I appreciate the lesson it teaches. But it's the illustrations that really put it over the top. They're super hilarious and RICH with emotion. They're very exaggerated, but I think that fits the nature of the story. Another winner in my book!

Find it at your library or on Amazon
