My Friend is Sad

by Mo Willems

My Friend is Sad is another funny, engaging and endearing instalment in Caldecott Honor-winner, Mo Willems’ Elephant & Piggie series of easy-readers. Stodgy, bespectacled Elephant is sad. His best friend, quirky, quick-thinking Piggie, decides to dress up as a cowboy, clown and robot to cheer him up. Piggie’s plans fail, but not for reasons you’d expect! Deceptively simple, comic-like pictures perfectly convey the two friends’ different (yet complementary) personalities and wild swings of emotions while the large-sized speech bubble text will encourage younger readers to try their hand at reading independently. This hilarious story will tickle readers of all ages.
