Review from library copy.

Awww, cheer up! ( )

Nicely illustrated. Never knew about elephant and piggie books but if they're all similar to this one not sure if we'll read any others. It's a good book but not that great. ( )

My Friend Is Sad by Mo Willems is the second of the Elephant and Piggie series for early readers. Gerald is sad and Piggie does everything she can to cheer him up.

This is the book that establishes how strong their friendship is. Piggie dresses up as all number of characters to cheer up Gerald. He does briefly but every time he does, he realizes he wants to share the experience with Piggie. He doesn't, though, realize that it's Piggie doing all these impersonations.

That's another big theme with their friendship — good natured misunderstandings. Piggie and Gerald aren't always on the same page but they often think they are. But they always mean well. ( )
