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!
