about

"[In] a joyous twist on the counting-book concept, a girl decides how many elephants are needed to pull a train out of a tunnel, paint the ceiling, go to the beach. . . .Bond's well-executed illustrations [project] a contagious sense of movement. A puckish sense of humor prevails among elephants who skateboard, don sunglasses, act tough, and even wink at the audience." —SLJ.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elephant Power! How many elephants does it take to write an exellent book for children? Only one, and this author has done it! I bought this book for my nephew and he loves it! At story time, he actually asks for it by name! This book must be wonderful, Chapters is having a difficult time keeping a copy on the shelves! I give it 5 gold stars! Elephant power!
