Elephant and Piggie's We Are in a Play - Writing (in standard definition)

The story of Elephant and Piggie’s We Are in a Play! began as a book (well, six books to be exact). But to tell the stories on stage, the playwright Mo Willems had to adapt, or change, them so they would work together as one story.
