Let's go for a drive! by Mo Willems

Elephant and Piggie are the bestest of friends and they have all sorts of adventures and great times together - and Let's go for a drive! is no exception.  Elephant has the great idea of going for a drive, but needs a helping hand to plan the adventure - and Piggie is just the pig for the job.  What follows is the typical madcap madness that has become Mo Willems trademark for this terrific twosome.

Elephant and Piggie books are perfect for reading aloud - either big person and little person, or (as our personal favourite) read aloud to an audience by two friends who can bring all the energy and enthusiasm of the books to live.  The illustrations perfectly match the story and bring an infectious enthusiasm that encourages readers to throw themselves into character and do justice to the stories. 

I am not sure how Mo Willems manages to come up with all the storylines that he does for our favourite elephant and pig, but everytime a new story appears at work their are squeals of delight and a rush to find the right partner to read the story with so you can entertain everyone with the story at the same time.
