We Are in a Book! by Mo Willems

Gerald is careful. Piggie is not. Piggie cannot help smiling. Gerald can.

Gerald and Piggie are best friends.

In We Are in a Book! Gerald and Piggie discover the joy of being read. But what will happen when the book ends?

Using vocabulary perfect for beginning readers (and vetted by an early-learning specialist), author Mo Willems has crafted a mind-bending story that is even more interactive than previous Elephant & Piggie adventures. Gerald the elephant and his porcine companion Piggie realize that they are in a book. With that distinction comes power that makes them giggle: At whim, they can make the children reading them say funny words like “banana”! But with that power comes the realization that, with only a dozen pages left, their book will end. Is there any way to keep the fun going?

This is a book  that, though entertaining for children ages 3-5, is also ageless in its humor and imagination.
