In My New Friend Is So Fun!, Piggie has found a new friend! But is Gerald ready to share?
"Gerald runs into Snake, and the two engage in casual conversation. As it happens, Piggie (Gerald's best friend, you remember) is hanging out with Brian Bat, Snake's best friend. At first, Gerald and Snake are pleased that such nice creatures are having fun, but in no time, the two work themselves up into a (rather typical) lather, worrying that Piggie and Brian will become best friends with each other, leaving Gerald and Snake behind. Of course, such worry is folly all the while, Piggie and Brian are extolling the virtues of their current besties and the story ends with everyone's social circle enhanced. All of the requisite Elephant and Piggie elements are here, with expressive type size, colored word balloons (which now include green and brown in addition to the traditional gray and pink), apoplectic bedlam, and warm resolution. Elephant and Piggie's many friends will welcome these two new characters into the fold.--Barthelmess, Thom Copyright 2010 Booklist"
