If I had read this Elephant and Piggie
book to myself, I think that I'd have thought it was lackluster. Throw a five year old into the mix, and a book that I thought was lackluster takes on a certain brilliance. I don't know why this book is so funny, but my nephew just about died laughing! Piggie and Gerald had him laughing, and he had all of us laughing as we sat around the campfire. Good times!
