Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-- Havoc reigns when Bridgett's animal friends accompany her to the library. Her frog frightens the librarian, her hen lays an egg in the card catalog, her python sheds her skin all over everyone, and her hyena laughs at all the wrong places during storytime. It's not until her big, very big, elephant wrecks the place that the long-suffering librarian finally tells her to leave her animals at home. Back at home, all are content to have elephant read aloud to them. Read with enough verbal flair, Kimmel's ludicrous situations will make an acceptable filler for preschool and primary story times, but storytellers will really want to ``ham it up.'' The straightforward text begs for humor and elaborations in both the oral interpretation and the illustrations. Unfortunately, Sims' simple, full-color illustrations, while attractive enough and showing a nice range of ethnic faces, are disappointing in their literalness. Despite this, Kimmel's slight story is a pleasant and not-too-demanding addition for beginning readers. --Linda Boyles, Alachua County Library District, Gainesville, FL

    WONDERFUL STORY

    WE FIRST PICKED THIS UP AT THE LIBRARY, AND THEN PURCHASED IT. MY 3 YR OLD DAUGHTER LOVES THIS BOOK AND LOVES TO READ THE PART ABOUT THE ELEPHANT BY HERSELF "SO BIG...SOOOO BIG... SOOOOOO BIG!!!". SHE ALSO LIKES TO SOUND OUT THE LAUGH OF THE HYENA WHO LAUGHS IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES AT STORY TIME (ALTHOUGH THE AUTHOR DID NOT ADD A LAUGH LINE, YOU'LL SEE YOUR CHILD IMPROVISING ON THIS ONE).
