Piggie has a trumpet and can’t wait to show her best friend, Gerald. She is ready to play the instrument but no matter how hard she tries she cannot make a decent sound. “KL-ACK! GRE-ELP! dr-UMP! Gr-ick!” After her performance, she proudly waits for Geralds opinion. He tells her the trumpet is LOUD and shiny. Piggie demands more from Gerald so he tells her the truth, she hadn’t played music. Piggie responds, “I am trying to speak Elephant! I want to sound like you.” Touched, Gerald teaches Piggie to use the trumpet to sound more like an elephant.
