Mom . . . there's an elephant in the living room. It's moving day--and look who slipped in the door: an elephant! But when a little girl tries to tell her family about their unusual guest, the distracted grown-ups just say, "Ella WHO?" Even as children giggle at the girl's adventures with the smallish pachyderm, and at the fun, recurring refrain, they'll relate to the poignant theme about making--and sometimes letting go of--new friends.

This is a very cute story about a little girl who befriends an Elephant—the illustrations are adorable and give an added level of emotion to the story, and the unexpected twist brings the whole thing together.

Love the illustrations in this book! Cute story about a girl and an elephant. The only thing I didn't like was how oblivious the family is about her playing with an elephant, and that they don't seem to listen well to her.
