Nineteen books and five Geisel medals or honors along, Elephant and Piggie are still delivering funny, emotionally Gerald the elephant and Piggie return with another playground psychodrama, this one with a twist. His deft exploitation of comic-book conventions sets speech balloons to overlapping and appropriately varying in size. In the song, Smith meets a donkey on the road. Look for ready guffaws from young audiences, whether read or sung, though those attuned to disability stereotypes may find themselves wincing instead or as well. A lesson that never grows old, enacted with verve by two favorite friends.

Elephant and Piggie reach new heights with this book, sure to have the young reader curious and laughing in equal measure. Piggie comes to her friend to explain that a big guy took her ball.

Gerald wants none of this bullying behaviour and agrees to come to Piggies aid. He pushes his trunk into the air and rushes over, only to discover that big guy is an understatement. However, with a couple of smooth sentences and an open mind, Gerald is able to diffuse the situation and bring Piggie Elephant and Piggie reach new heights with this book, sure to have the young reader curious and laughing in equal measure.

However, with a couple of smooth sentences and an open mind, Gerald is able to diffuse the situation and bring Piggie something she needs, as well as creating a new friend for them both to enjoy. He told me that there were bullies, but that when you are nice to others, they sometimes want to be your friend. Oh Neo, if only that were true for all people who put on an air of bossiness!

Shelves: american-author , animals , childrens-ez-readers. These Mo Willems learn-to-read books are so witty -- visually as well as verbally. The complex facial expressions and body language of the characters belie the simplicity of the line drawings. And the stories and character read: human interactions are nuanced and maybe a little subversive. This one in particular exceeded expectations.

This was a great one that held the attention of all my children, both the 5 yr old and my 3 yr old twins.

Not enough words to merit a level one reader book but a wonderful story that's a fun read for both children and adults alike. Two thumbs up! View 2 comments. Dec 10, Karl rated it it was amazing Shelves: children-literature. What a great book! Ive just about exhausted my Indigenous childrens book exploration so now Im diving into some picture books in my schools library.

Great message, well illustrated and award winning. Theres definitely cross over appeal for Comics fans. Mar 12, Kristen Dutkiewicz rated it really liked it Shelves: childrens.

Another good one from Mo Willems! What type of animal could be bigger than Gerald the elephant Jun 14, Becky rated it really liked it Shelves: readin I've enjoyed every Elephant and Piggie book Mo Willem has published. But the series as a whole are practically perfect in my estimation! Mo Willems does everything exactly right time and time again. This adventure starts with Piggie telling Gerald a story. She found a ball, a big ball. It was the best ball ever.

She was having so much fun until a "big guy" came and took "her" ball. Piggie is outraged. Gerald is a friend, a good friend. If someone has picked on Piggie, he should do something to help, right?! Gerald was perhaps expecting a "big guy" around his own size But what Piggie and Gerald discover is a very large, but somewhat sad whale.

The whale is telling Piggie thank you. Thank you for finding and returning the ball. But the whale is without doubt sad. Can Gerald and Piggie help?! I loved this book. I liked discovering the real story. A good reminder that there is always more than one side to any story!

It was also great at showing problem solving! I think my favorite scene was: "Would you like to play "Whale Ball" with us? Jun 24, Jay rated it it was amazing Shelves: new-picture-book. Mo Willems has always had a knack for complex expressions in cartoonish characters, but A Big Guy Took My Ball elevates this skill beyond anything we've seen from him before: Piggie's crushed, thousand-mile stare at the loss of her big ball it was, after all, "SO FUN" , Gerald's righteous fury and eventual cowed reaction to the Big Guy in question, and the Big Guy's own wordless, slumping disappointment from his introduction are all marvelous.

Elephant and Piggie stories are always fantastic for Mo Willems has always had a knack for complex expressions in cartoonish characters, but A Big Guy Took My Ball elevates this skill beyond anything we've seen from him before: Piggie's crushed, thousand-mile stare at the loss of her big ball it was, after all, "SO FUN" , Gerald's righteous fury and eventual cowed reaction to the Big Guy in question, and the Big Guy's own wordless, slumping disappointment from his introduction are all marvelous.

Elephant and Piggie stories are always fantastic for reading aloud, especially with two readers. A Big Guy Took My Ball is already a particular favorite at my bookstore's storytime, though, given the aforementioned mastery of expressions, a fun visual twist, and the potential to let loose your best Ellen-DeGeneres-as-fish-speaking-whale impersonation.

Jun 19, Betsy rated it it was amazing Shelves: childrens , easy-readers. I read each new Elephant and Piggie book with a bit of trepidation: after all, how can Willems keep writing such wonderful stuff?

Surely he's going to plateau here, right? But no, he keeps on producing terrific new titles with these lovable characters.

I love the simplicity of his art--like the pink cheeks on Gerald when he sees the "big guy" for the first time. I love the pacing in this book. I love the friendship dynamics between Elephant and Piggie and all their cronies. Willems just gets the I read each new Elephant and Piggie book with a bit of trepidation: after all, how can Willems keep writing such wonderful stuff?
