This is another deliciously humorous tale about everyone's favourite Elephant and Piggle. Best friends Elephant and Piggie return in their seventh adventure. In "Watch Me Throw the Ball!", Gerald is determined to teach Piggie that ball-throwing is a serious business...but Piggie is just as determined to have serious fun. Told entirely in speech bubbles with a repetitive use of familiar phrases, this highly original book is perfect for children who are just learning to read.
Another delightful tale about best friends Elephant Gerald (who is careful) and exuberant Piggie (who is not). The perfect book for children making the transition from picture books to early readers. Mandy
