Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2—In this installment, the patchwork elephant uses his powers of negotiation to solve a conflict. The hippos' river has seemingly dried up, causing them to crowd the elephants' waterway and make everyone miserable. After discovering that fallen rocks are the problem, Elmer and his cousin Wilber rally the other animals to restore the river's flow. Job done, all the animals realize that working together is the best way to achieve a goal resulting in a splashy, happy, and satisfying ending for all. With its vibrant, eye-catching colors and engaging goings-on, this book is a visual delight.—Jasmine L. Precopio, Fox Chapel Area School District, Pittsburgh, PA
