Elephant and Piggie return in another beginning reader showcasing the relationship—sometimes at odds—between this pair. Dialogue bubbles convey the entire brief text, while simple, expressive line drawings work in tandem with the words to tell a story that magnifies emotions and humor. In this case, that story has to do with throwing a ball, a skill Elephant has been practicing. But who needs practice? Piggie is sure he has succeeded on his first try. (“Who rocks?! The pig rocks!!”) And Piggie has—if fun is the ultimate goal. (Ages 4–7)
