Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Little Elephant lives in a cozy house with lots of toys and two loving parents. Despite all these comforts, he is unhappy because he has no friends. One day he comes across a group of small animals playing in the water and asks if he can join them. The creatures enthusiastically include Little Elephant in their activities, but soon come to the conclusion that he is just too big to play with them. Greatly saddened, he goes home and tells his parents about his problem. They suggest that he think of other things he can do with the frogs, the turtle, and the heron. He then helps them fly a kite when there is no wind, and allows them to use his trunk for a slide and a shower. Gorbachev's pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations are very lively, especially when Little Elephant is trying to play with the small creatures. The bright colors and expressive animals make this an inviting story about making friends and fitting in. While it is a little more message-oriented than the author's other works, the art keeps the tone light and makes the book enjoyable.-Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
