“I think someone is looking at us,” whispers Gerald to Piggie. They peer out of the pages, discovering they are in a book. Piggie, with a grin, realises the “reader is reading these word bubbles!” and she can make the reader say things like “Banana!” which has Piggie and Gerald doubled over with laughter. As the book concludes, the pair panic as each page number passes. “This book is going too fast. I have more to give” shouts a desperate Gerald. On the last page they make a plea to the reader – “Will you please read us again?”
