Luka® can read these books!

 

If there was ever a series we doubted could be translated into another language without losing its charm, Mo Willems' Elephant and Piggie series (开心小猪和大象哥哥 kāi xīn xiǎo zhū hé dà xiàng gē ge) would be it! However, Chinese translator 戴永翔 has done a great job preserving the essence of Mo Willems' signature style in these translated editions.

Why we love these books: 

  • Simple dialogues in LARGE speech bubbles 
  • Repetitive phrases and common expressions 
  • Carefully scripted text in a conversational style
  • Most importantly, kids find them laugh-out-loud funny

All these features make these books incredibly engaging beginner books for even the youngest Chinese learners.  Children who knows about 300-500 Chinese character would feel an incredible sense of accomplishment and build their reading confidence as they complete each 57-page book!   

* Please note that the outer packaging of this book series was slightly damaged during its long journey from China. The outer packaging is not intended to be used as a book holder. All the books themselves are in perfect condition.  

Differences between the two Elephant & Piggie book sets we carry: 

We also carry an Elephant & Piggie 5-Book Set, which includes 5 hardcover books that are not included in this 17-book set.  

Both Elephant & Piggie Book sets are decent translations that have preserved Mo Willems' books' playfulness, simplicity and humor. There is, however, one main translation difference:  The 17-book set translated the elephant's name "Gerald" phonetically into a Chinese name "杰拉(jié lā), “  while the 5-book set translated "Gerald" into "小象"(xiǎo xiàng Little Elephant).   Although "杰拉(jié lā), " as a translated name, is not considered frequently-used vocabulary,  each character by itself is high frequency character: "杰 (jié, excellent", and 拉(lā, pull).

Ages 1+ will enjoy having these books read to them either by Luka® or a caregiver.

The limited text per page and the prevalence of common language make it a good "bridge book" for readers. The involved plot and detailed illustrations will capture the interest of experienced readers ages 3+. 

Option to pair with Luka®:
Consider adding Luka®, the reading robot, to your order. Luka® reads 70,000 books in Mandarin Chinese! 

Luka also reads 8 books in this set both in Chinese and English (just tap Luka's head twice to switch languages). The 8 books that Luka reads both in English and Chinese are:
