Reviews that are nothing to sneeze at...

The fine folks at Booklist enjoyed the latest Elephant and Piggie adventure, Pigs Make Me Sneeze!, saying:
"Like a popular TV situation comedy, the combination of the familiar (the expressive comic-book art, the limited vocabulary of only 71 unique words) with the new (a fresh dilemma with the friendship at the core) will please current fans and draw in new ones."
Meanwhile, over at School Library Journal, Pigs Make Me Sneeze! gets a starred review. They say:

"The spare colored-pencil drawings are devoid of background detail. Text is spare too, with speech bubbles against the white pages. Both are simply perfect. ...Willems knows how to create rich humor with few words and minimal art."

Thanks, Booklist and SLJ!
