An Elephant & Piggie Biggie!: Volume 5

Disney-Hyperion. (Elephant & Piggie). Oct. 2022. 320p. Tr $16.99. ISBN 9781368072243.
K-Gr 3–Readers will see the duo preparing for a party with more and more elaborate costumes, learn that one doesn’t have to be a pig to celebrate Pig Day, and other big moments from their adventures. The signature style of Willems captures expressions ranging from devious as the friends try to surprise each other, to awed as they gaze at a star-filled sky, or even grateful as they thank readers for being “the best.”
VERDICT This excellent collection reissues I Am Invited to a Party!, I Will Surprise My Friend!, Happy Pig Day!, Waiting Is Not Easy!, and The Thank You Book—hundreds of pages of fun with Piggie and Gerald.
