Review
Piggie is "one lucky pig," and she's determined to make sure she thanks "everyone who is important to" her in this, the final Elephant & Piggie book.Gerald is sure his friend will forget someone—"someone important"—but Piggie assures him, "It will be a THANK-O-RAMA!" Piggie proceeds to thank the Squirrels for their great ideas, Snake for playing ball, and the Pigeon "for never giving up." Piggie thanks and thanks: "I am a thanking machine!" She thanks character after character, even the Flies ("Any time, dude!"), as Gerald continues to interject that she'll forget "someone VERY important." Finally Piggie runs out of thanks, and by this time Gerald is steamed. "I goofed," Piggie says in itty-bitty type, before lavishing thanks on Gerald. But that's not whom Piggie forgot to thank! A classic Willems tantrum later, Gerald reveals the "someone important": "Our reader." Of course. "We could not be ‘us' without you," says Gerald, earnestly looking out from the page, and Piggie chimes in, "You are the best!" As Elephant & Piggie books go, this isn't one of the strongest, but it is a validating valediction to fans of the two characters, who have won Willems two Geisel Medals and five Honors. Yes, Gerald and Piggie have ushered countless readers into literacy, but as they rightly note, reading is a collaborative act. Thank you, Gerald and Piggie. We'll miss you. (Early reader. 5-8)(Kirkus Reviews, May 15, 2016)
