Sadly, ‘The Thank you Book’ is the final chapter from Mo Willem’s Piggie and Elephant series. Piggie sits back to back with her best friend Gerald and considers herself “one lucky pig.” She is determined to thank all the important people in her life. A sceptical Gerald watches on and tells Piggie, “You will forget someone.” 

Piggie’s ‘Thank-O-Rama’ involves many familiar characters – Doctor Cat, the flies, the squirrels, the lovebirds and many others. Gerald is certain she will forget someone very important – him! At first, he is hopeful and then visibly upset when Piggie forgets him. She realises her error she apologises for her mistake only for Gerald to prompt her to thank someone else… the reader!
