I AM GOING! (to get a Star)

The latest (lastest?*) edition of the Kirkus Reviews has nice things to say about the upcoming Elephant and Piggie adventure I AM GOING!

In a starred review they say:

The two-time (so far) Geisel Medalist continues to set the bar high for beginning-reader achievement in this latest installment of the Elephant & Piggie series.
They also like the ending

...replete with colors that satisfyingly deviate from the series’ limited palette. To paraphrase Gerald: This is a good book.

I AM GOING! hits the shelves at the end of January.

* Thanks to everyone at Kirkus! Elephant and Piggie will miss you.

Other nice recent reviews include the Modesto Bee's reaction to Pigs Make Me Sneeze! and a nice AudioFile review of the Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! audio book.
