The Itchy Book by LeUyen Pham (Elephant & Piggie Like Reading! Series) + Reader Giveaway

My kids and I have really enjoyed all things Mo Willems, especially his Elephant & Piggie series. So we were heartbroken (at first) to find out that there wouldn’t be any more new books published after The Thank You Book in 2016.

Happily, we discovered that Elephant and Piggie live on through the Elephant & Piggie Like Reading! beginning-reader series created by Mo Willems. In this series, best friends Elephant and Piggie introduce kids to their favorite books, brought to life in original stories created by contemporary children’s book authors and illustrators.

The next book in this series is The Itchy Book by LeUyen Pham, recommended for ages 6-8. It hits stores May 15, 2018. My kids were SO excited to read this one! It’s a cute story told in a similar style to the Elephant and Piggie series, but with LeUyen Pham’s own personal flair.

The Itchy Book Illustrations

Here’s a little more about the book:

They may be dinosaurs, but their gigantic discover still holds true three million years later. Itchy dinosaurs try to follow a very important, very prehistoric rule. A rule so important and so prehistoric, it’s written in stone. DINOSAURS DO NOT SCRATCH!

Triceratops has an itch. . . so does Pterodactyl. . . and Brontosaurus. . . and T-Rex! But Dino-Mo reminds them all of the BIG rule: Dinosaurs do not scratch! What’s an itchy dinosaur to do? Find out in this hilariously charming beginning reader by author/illustrator LeUyen Pham.

LeUyen Pham is one of my kids’ favorite illustrators, so it was fun to see that this book was written by her, as well! You’ve seen her work in the Princess in Black series as well as Freckleface Strawberry, Grace for President, and lots more. Her detailed and hilarious style is a perfect match for the Elephant & Piggie Like Reading! series.

Reader Giveaway: One lucky Jinxy Kids reader will receive a book prize pack including The Itchy Book; two more Elephant & Piggie Like Reading! titles: We Are Growing! and The Cookie Fiasco; the final Elephant & Piggie title: The Thank You Book; a branded back scratcher; PLUS custom THANK-O-RAMA “Thank You” notes! To enter, complete the entry form below by 11:59 pm ET on 5/21/18. Good luck!
