Elephant and Piggie really value their time together. Then, in the middle of a perfect day together, Piggie says she has to go. It's enough to turn Gerald into an anxious pile of sadness. For me, it read less like a touching story of friendly closeness than a scary tale of co-dependence, but kids might get a kick out of the punchline (I saw it - or a variation of it coming, and still smiled).
