What's Ella WHO? About

Publisher Summary

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.

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
5.0 / 7.0

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.

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mama who believes you're never too old for magical stories of talking animals and imaginary worlds.
4.75 / 7.0

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.
