I Broke My Trunk! (An Elephant and Piggie Book)

My Review

Gerald, the gray elephant with glasses, shares with Piggie how his trunk broke because she really wants to know. So she listens attentively and with expectation to Gerald's crazy story. It's a delightful conversation between these two characters that will hold young people's attention.The scenarios that follow next leave the reader laughing aloud and adults will enjoy, too. The illustrations are simple in style and adorable. I especially like the one of Gerald lifting Hippo on his trunk. Soon Rhino shows up and yes, you guessed it. Plus, add Rhino's sister, along with her piano. Piggie impatiently asks, "How did you break your trunk?!" You've just got to get this funny book and read the conclusion. My 6 year old grandson loves this one. I do, too!

5/5 stars. Recommend to friends.

I thought this particular sunrise went well with the Elephant & Piggie Book. I know, I can't find those images either in this picture but at least the pastel orange matches the top band of the book! How is it where you are? Photo for Skywatch Friday
