The Thank You Book, by Mo Willems

Everyone who likes picture books loves Mo Willems—he is brilliant. Some of us are silly enough to think we might write and illustrate something similar to his hugely successful ELEPHANT AND PIGGIE series. We soon discover that though they are simple and obvious, they are special and magical. It is a bit like thinking one might do a portrait in the Picasso style.

The point in all of them is that Elephant and Piggie are complete opposites but best friends. Each book has them solving a problem in their own way, but succeeding by combining who they are and how they see things.

Mo Willems’ latest book is: The Thank You Book.

Some of the other titles are: Should I share my ice cream?, Waiting Is Not Easy, My New Friend Is So Fun!, We Are In a Book!, There Is a Bird on Your Head!
