Summary
Yellow Bird has a button. It does . . . nothing! It is a good for nothing button. Red Bird and Blue Bird are excited to try the button. But when they press it, they discover that the button makes them happy. Happy is something! A flabbergasted Yellow Bird insists the button does nothing. But it sure does seem to be making him mad. Mad is something!
The hilarious debate that follows takes readers on an emotional roller coaster that pokes at the power of imaginative play.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Elephant & Piggie Like Reading! serves as both the series title and a descriptor for this philosophically cogent, if hypercaffeinated, episode. In very simply drawn outdoor scenes featuring large single words or short phrases in dialogue balloons, a yellow bird shows a red and a blue bird a button that supposedly does nothing when pressed. The blue bird, who is permanently gobsmacked by everything, pushes it and leaps back with a WOW! According to the red bird: A surprise is not nothing. Likewise, after the red bird takes a turn, blue observes that red looks sad, and sad is NOT nothing. Insisting that the button isn't doing anything, the yellow bird becomes increasingly steamed prompting comments that it has, first, made yellow bird mad and, ultimately, funny! All three finally just get silly with the button, and after they collapse in exhaustion, the red bird remarks, Wow. That button can do everything! Despite a claim on the rear cover that Willems is proud to have contributed nothing to this story, his ever-popular Elephant and Piggie characters open the easy book with a teaser and close it with a pun (I am im-press-ed!). Readers well beyond the target audience will be, too.--Peters, John Copyright 2017 Booklist"
