    Alright this is going to get awfully heavy for a children s book.Taken as a children s book We are in a Book is successful on all counts The vocabulary is repeated without tedium while still managing to be expressed in context The artwork is charming, the characters pleasantly quirky without being overt, and all in all the word bubble dynamic make it easy for a child to identify tone and conflict.So, mechanically, this is a very well written children s book.Now to the overall plot Ge Alright this is going to get awfully heavy for a children s book.Taken as a children s book We are in a Book is successful on all counts The vocabulary is repeated without tedium while still managing to be expressed in context The artwork is charming, the characters pleasantly quirky without being overt, and all in all the word bubble dynamic make it easy for a child to identify tone and conflict.So, mechanically, this is a very well written children s book.Now to the overall plot Gerald and Piggie are seen relaxing when one realizes that they are, in fact, being watched by a reader Yes, the book is completely meta The two explore the power they have over the reader by making the reader say specific words This also acts as a tutorial on how to read Mo Willems typical work.Then it gets AWESOME Gerald finally catches wind that the book will end ENDS THE BOOK ENDS While he is exploring the horror and helplessness of his own ceasing to be Piggie attempts to comfort him The worrisome nature of death is apparent in the elephant s expression, and the pig s stoicism and light hearted approach is the foil to this The two characters literally have a masked discussion about how all books must end whoa.After Piggie peeks ahead a few pages not unlike the most powerful of soothsayers she devises a way in which Gerald and her can continue their existence they need to be read again.The reader, unable to decline the pleading request, feels compelled to read the book again from the beginning only to find that that alarm of Gerald has not eased and the same solution has been reached It is a Sisyphean endeavor You must read the book endlessly for ALL TIME TO PREVENT THE END OF GERALD AND PIGGIE Unlike the Buddhist wheel, they do not grow or diminish or reincarnate in any way different than their current iteration, leaving the reader in an inescapable causality loop How badass is that

    Although my 2 yr old twins weren t old enough to appreciate the story, they still enjoyed the pictures And my 5 yr old absolutely loved the story We read a lot, but this was the first time we read a story with the characters talking to us It was a novel idea for him and his eyes shown with the excitement of it The pig and elephant were adorable, and I was struck by how many books Mo Willems actually has out There are so many When the pig asked us if we d read the book again, we all answere Although my 2 yr old twins weren t old enough to appreciate the story, they still enjoyed the pictures And my 5 yr old absolutely loved the story We read a lot, but this was the first time we read a story with the characters talking to us It was a novel idea for him and his eyes shown with the excitement of it The pig and elephant were adorable, and I was struck by how many books Mo Willems actually has out There are so many When the pig asked us if we d read the book again, we all answered a resounding, Yes

    Elephant and Piggie are great The illustrations in their books are simple, but effective in conveying body language for younger readers A lot can be read into the illustrations.I like this books because it helps to teach about some of the concepts of print It introduces page numbers and speech bubbles I also like the way they encourage readers to re read the story.Such a positive message bout reading I love it
