" So this was cute and funny. I liked the illustrations and the plot, as well as Elephant and Piggie's reactions to the book. I guess the reason I give 3 stars and not 4 (which I guess I'd put 3.5 if I could) is because I feel like some of the humor of this book might be a bit beyond that of little kids who read Elephant and Piggie. " said.

" Brillant idea Dan Santat! Take the hottest thing for young readers since Dr Seuss, Elephant & Piggie by Mo Willems (a god of author awesomeness), and mix it up with two similar but different animal characters, Harold & Hog, and the end result is the best of all worlds - with even a pigeon on the last page. Get out! Kids are going to eat this book up in the library this fall - so excited!! " said.

" I LOVE Mo Willems and I enjoy a lot of Dan Santat's work (Ninja Pigs), but this was a total miss. My older boys (age 6 and 8). Not interesting enough on its own - why did they have a pig and elephant pretending to be Gerald and Piggie? Why not another 2 animals? I love the idea of early readers modeled after the Mo classics but this one needed something unique to latch onto. It didn't have it. " said.

" If your first grader was a fan of Elephant & Piggie, they are going to love awarding winning author Dan Santat's take on the duo. Harold and Hog are huge fans of Elephant and Piggie. In fact, they are such huge fans they want to play pretend as each character. In the end, they discover that they are best and happiest just being themselves. Reviewer #13 " said.

" My five year old has just gotten to the point where we can each read a part in Elephant and Piggie. This book, modeled extremely closely on the original series, fit right in with our read aloud fun. Trying to read any E&P book as expressively as possible is hugely entertaining for everyone. The illustrations make me want to see how other artists would interpret Elephant and Piggie and Piggie... Seymour and Sow, Bernard and Boar, Pritchard and Porker... " said.

" I am sad that there will be no more new Elephant and Piggie books by Mo Willems. But, there is now a Harold and Hog book. Harold and Hog are best friends. They decide that they will pretend to be elephant and Piggie, but Harold is to carefree to be Gerald, and Hog is to anxious to be Piggie. The illustrations are hilarious, and the solution to the personality problem is delightful! There is even a cameo by the Pigeon. Thank you Dan Santat, and Mo Willems!This is a fantastic early reader. " said.

"I love Mo Willems and his Elephant & Piggie series. I love Dan Santat and everything he writes. Them together = Amazing!

I had really high expectations when I heard about this book and it didn't disappoint at all! It is such a fun fun read!

I'm not sure that younger kids (those that are typically into Elephant and Piggie) will immediately get all the things that are funny in this book but they will get enough. The kids that grew up reading Elephant & Piggie that are now upper elementary students will LOVE this!
" said.

"Gerald and Piggie sit down with a new book to read. It's all about an elephant named Harold and his friend Hog who decide to pretend to be Gerald and Piggie, but their personalities don't seem to match up well...until they think a little more creatively.

Oh, Dan Santat, you clever, clever man. This book is GENIUS! It was funny, and entertaining, and has a subtle message about embracing your own personality. I loved it, and I am sure young readers will too. Hand this to Elephant & Piggie fans, beginning readers, and kids learning to be comfortable in their personality.
