Walker Books, 2012. ISBN 9781406373578
(AGe: 3+) Recommended. Themes: Friendship; Creativity. Elephant has lots of good ideas . . . and Pig is good at seeing them through. With delightful repetition, the two friends come up with all they need for a drive. Almost! Fortunately Piggie is clever enough to come up with an alternate plan, and the two friends can enjoy their planning after all. With Mo Willems delightful and gentle humour, and simple illustrations, this is a book that young children will love. The winner in this book is friendship and creative thinking!
Recommended for aged 3+ (Older children will also love the quirkiness!)
