When I first glanced through this one and saw all of Piggie's noises, I thought, "Uh-oh, this is going to be a mess for a beginning reader to read." But Mo was a step ahead of me as usual. I just read it out loud for the first time to my 11yo, deliberately saying each one of the trumpet noises out loud along the way.

You know what? Each of the noises is a five letter "word," each starting with a two-letter blend like /bl/ or /gr/, followed by a hyphen, and each ending with a three-letter rime such as -ick or -unk. The result is that these bizarre noises are actually highly predictable, and provide great practice to new readers in sounding out unfamiliar "words." ( )

A terrific early reader: the sight words are not going to be much use, since half the book consists of onomatopoeic words, but it's great practice in phoneme reading. Although, your kid may end up having a hard time reading through the book as he will be laughing so hard ...

It is a really funny story too, definitely one of the funnier ones in the series! ( )

Review from library copy.

Dear Mo Willems - if you didn't already have a Trixie and a Trixie's mommy, I'd be your Trixie mommy. ( )

Listen to my Trumpet! by Mo Willems is the seventeenth Elephant and Piggie book. Once again Piggie proves herself to be a wacky, wonderful and irreplaceable best friend.

Piggie has gotten a trumpet. She wants to show it to Gerald. She makes all sorts of horrendous, non-musical sounds come out of it. Gerald, friend that he is, listens politely. But his facial expressions show he's as puzzled by all this as the rest of us.

But Piggie has her reasons. All is soon explained. Meanwhile, though, readers and listeners can have fun mimicking Piggie's trumpet playing. ( )
