In "Let's Go for a Drive!", Mo Willems employs his classic Elephant and Piggie formula: perfectly placed speech bubbles, effective use of white space, endearing facial expressions, phonetic play and just plain silliness.

When Gerald proposes that he and Piggie go for a drive, Piggie enthusiastically agrees and the two chant: “Drive! Drive! Drivey-drive-drive!” Gerald, a master planner, insists that they bring a map, sunglasses, umbrellas, bags and, of course, a car. But wait: Piggie doesn’t have one (“[a] pig with a car would be silly”) and neither does Gerald. Whatever will they do?

The pair’s chorus becomes both playful and educational; after “Map! Map! Mappy-map-map!”, children will attempt to fit sunglasses, umbrellas etc into the same pattern. And, in the end, Gerald and Piggie come up with a charming solution that satisfies all Willems fans.

Another great Elephant and Piggie adventure! As they prepare all of the things they might need to go for a drive: sunglasses, map, umbrellas in case it rains, and suitcases, they realize they are missing one crucial thing: a car!! Funny as usual!!
