  • Reviewer: Staff

In this humorous outing, Gerald the elephant and Piggie debate whether or not “elephants can dance.” Gerald, who is convinced that he cannot (he tells Piggie to look it up in the “What Elephants Can Do” book) decides to give it a go nonetheless. Results are mixed, with Gerald basically doing the opposite of each instruction. Willems’s characteristically sparse cartoon images and the use of speech balloons portray the comical dilemma with clarity, making it an ideal pick for early readers. Ages 4–8.(June)
