Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Eleanor, an elephant, is concerned about the size of her nose in an endearing tale about the triumph of self-confidence. Ages 4-8. (March)
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2 In Caple's winsome first book, children will meet Eleanor Elephant and easily empathize with her problem: she has the biggest nose in her school. Eleanor's attempts to be like everyone else are depicted in engaging watercolors which will enable children to share her realization that everyone has at least one attention-drawing attribute. The size, illustration and text make this a reachable picture book alternative to the ``I Can Read'' format for primary level readers, as well as a fine selection for story hours.
