We love Elephant and Piggie around here. This book exceeded my expectations. It is funny for kids because of the hysteria that ensues after the characters realize that they control us and what we say. Their interaction with the readers is very playful and delightful. On a deeper note, it toys with a theme of mortality and existence. There is an dark urgency toward the end of the book as they realize that the story is almost finished and anxiety about what will happen next. Additionally, while they realized that they can control us by making us say funny words, readers realize that they can also control them (and their very existence!) by whether they decide to read the book again. Deep stuff for philosophy nerds, but a fun read for the kiddies. Can't lose with this book!
