The fourteenth book in Mo Willems’s beloved Elephant and Piggie series is just as refreshing and funny as the pair’s previous adventures. In this book, Gerald the elephant relays the long, tortuous tale of how I Broke My Trunk (Hyperion, $8.99) to Piggie, who is, as usual, full of curiosity. Piggie is so excited by Gerald’s story that he dashes off to tell his other friends when – oops! – he gets his very own story to tell. Ages 3-8. KLP
