I Am Invited to a Party

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

Gerald is careful and serious, while Piggy is impetuous and carefree, and by combining elements from both their personalities they are able to arrive at sensible answers to questions which might perplex young readers.

In this story Piggie is invited to her first party, and Gerald continually worries that she won’t have exactly the right costume.

Willems’ lively, funny, clear pictures set against a plain white background, and short clear statements set within speech bubbles can be easily interpreted by the youngest readers, and invite discussion about what the animals are wearing, as well aselaboration of the conversations.
