Employee Review

A clever spider tricks an elephant and some other animals into thinking the melon in which he is hiding can speak. Everyone will laugh at this silly story, which makes a great choice for story time. Kids will love the marvelous illustrations of the animated animal characters, and enjoy trying to predict the ending.
