Another installment in the Elephant and Piggie series, My New Friend is So Fun! looks at a common worry for kids as they learn about building friendships. Gerald the elephant and Piggie the pig have been best friends forever and are virtually inseparable. In this episode, Gerald and Snake’s best friends are playing together. Gerald and Snake worry that they might have too good a time and would not need them anymore. They hurry off to find their friends and end the fun – before it is too late! The pair become quite anxious. Our friends are relieved to find that they have been worrying for nothing.
This is a wonderfully paced, easy-to-follow story with the colour coded speech bubbles and humorous body language readers have come to expect from Willems. Great for readers ages 6 to 8.
