Mo Willems' simple illustrations are genius! Every line is important. We, as the readers, know exactly how Elephant, Piggie, Pigeon, and Trixie are feeling. Kids get this. Kids love Mo Willems! Adults love Mo Willems! Librarians adore and idolize him! We know his secret. Making children laugh while they are learning to read. I Broke My Trunk is now my favorite E & P book. The story, the expressions on their faces, the hippos, everything is perfect! Mark my words, Mo Willems is going to go down in history as one of America's all time best children's authors and illustrators EVER!
