Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 11/01/2011 PreS-Gr 3—Beginning readers will delight in this funny tale. Gerald and Piggie are celebrating "The day of the pig" with pig songs, pig dances, pig food, pig games, and friends wishing one another "oinky, oink oink," which is "pig for Happy Pig Day!" Gerald the elephant seems genuinely interested in this celebration until Piggie's friends start speaking "pig" and he feels left out. The animated characters convey emotion and humor; masterful use of white space and comic-style text bubbles will inspire repeated readings. Another hit for Willems.—Melissa Smith, Royal Oak Public Library, MI - Copyright 2011 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.

Booklist - 10/15/2011 Hooray, it’s Happy Pig Day! Of course, Gerald the elephant has no clue what this means, so Piggie launches into the holiday’s myriad glories. The parties! The dances! The pig foods! The pig games! Everyone crying Oinky! Oink! Oink! (That’s Happy Pig Day in Pig.) But while Piggie cavorts with other pigs, Gerald slinks away, feeling, as many kids sometimes do, the exclusion of not being involved in a particular holiday. Here Willems displays his cunning use of white space: the two friends are so far apart on the page. The good news? Happy Pig Day is for those who love pigs, too. - Copyright 2011 Booklist.
