Margaret Smith, winner of the Ninth Annual American Comedy award for Best Stand-Up Comic, Female, in 1994, makes dysfunctional family life the backbone of her act. Deadpan delivery, blank-faced, and funny sums up her dark humor. She is one child out of six in a demented, dysfunctional Middle American family. But she contends that all families are dysfunctional in some way or another.

Smith left home for college and needed money. Since she was from Chicago, she applied, successfully, for a job at Second City, which would pay half of her school tuition. That gig lasted three-and-a-half years and included writing many of the group's sketches. Eventually, she gravitated to New York City, where she began her stand-up career.

    " This is a perfect book to teach young children the concept of sharing. I would recommend this book for kindergarteners as well as children of young ages. "

    " Awesome book! My brother has probably read this book forty times. We can probably recite it backwards and forwards. It's funny and cute and easy... how he learned to read was completely dependent on E & P books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arlene Allen | 1/29/2014

    " What can I say? Mo Willems is an addiction... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cat Fithian | 1/24/2014

    " Elephant and Piggie, it's like you know me! Poor elephant can't feel good about eating his ice cream because he thinks he should share with Piggie, but Piggie isn't there. Don't let guilt and indecision drive you to miss out on life, Elephant! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dylan | 1/1/2014

    " Very clever, great pacing, fun art, nicely done. A great piece on friendship, sharing, and on the conflicts that a child/person feels between self-gratification vs. more social ways of being. Very appropriate to the psychological and moral development of the little ones who will enjoy this book. In other words, despite being an enjoyable and easy reader, it's pretty deep. "

    " Another fabulous Elepahtn and Piggie tale! You'll want to purchase this! AM "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Taylor Johnson | 12/14/2013

    " This was yet another Elephant and Piggie book. The illustrations add to the story and help children decode words they do not know as well as they the story even if they can not decode all of the words yet. Very funny and full of adventure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn | 11/29/2013

    " preschool +. Another cute elephant and pig story about friendship and sharing. Elephant can't decide what to do but it all works out in the end...not the way elephant thought! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin Sanders | 8/6/2013

    " I read this one to my class when we were talking about compassion. It shows how being compassionate is not always easy, but there is a nice intrinsic reward when you are compassionate. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristy | 2/7/2013

    " I think this is a really good book for kids...obviously, with the whole sharing thing. It's also got a great surprise ending, which most of these Elephant And Piggy books do. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina | 5/17/2012

    " Um-loved it- if you have kids (or even if you haven't) and haven't read the Elephant and Piggie series you are missing it. Two of my favorite characters- We are in a Book is my favorite, but this one is another gem- humor and friendship and never saccharine or too adult. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 6/29/2010

    " 3 1/2. Great expressions and humor as always but the ending didn't feel quite right. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diana | 12/24/2009

    " The best of friends Elephant and Piggie. Always good for a laugh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donalyn | 7/5/2008

    " Another charming installment in the Elephant and Piggie series. This time, Gerald obsesses about whether or not he should share his delicious ice cream cone with Piggie. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 4/1/2008

    " Once again, Gerald has an important and comic lesson to learn. When he treats himself to an ice cream cone, Gerald must decide whether or not to share with Piggy. Willems' illustrations are incredibly simple but evocative. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue Pak | 2/28/2008

    " This book is about sharing. It lists out adjectives that describes the ice cream. Mo Willems' books are excellent for the early grades as it helps build fluency and expression. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alicia | 7/5/2007

    " I love Elephant and Piggie. This is a sweet addition to the series, and a great book about sharing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 2/19/2007

    " Mo Willems strikes again. Not my FAVORITE favorite Elephant and Piggie, but definitely fun. I love these books, and so does my three-year-old, Spencer. "
