Elephant and Piggie are back, and this time Gerald is feeling cranky and wants to take a nap because he knows it will make him feel better. Piggie decides to give napping a try as well, but he might have some snoring issues! Young kids will love this book and giggle through all of Piggie’s snoring.

As usual, characters from other Mo Willems’ books make an appearance, naming Knuffle Bunny, and as always Pigeon is hiding in the end papers. I love the ending of this story. There is a slight twist, which makes you wonder how much of the story is a dream and what is real? This would make a fun conversation to have with children after a read aloud.

Overall, another highly enjoyable story from Mo Willems.
