What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

A hilarious celebration of imagination–and pets–that will have kids laughing

What’s a boy to do when an elephant shows up at his door and wants to play? Eating cake makes a big mess, there’s not enough room in the pool for the two of them, and jumping on the bed may be the biggest disaster of all! But hugs? Well, those work. Elephants are probably the best huggers around.

With dozens of laughs, a big elephant sneeze, and a hug you won’t soon forget, this book will make you wish an elephant came to play at your house too.
