Overview

George comes home one day to find an elephant watching TV and eating chocolate chip cookies in his living room. When he tells his friends, they say it's impossible: George must be seeing things. But the next day, and the day after that, his large and uninvited guest remains and makes itself even more at home -- with disastrous results. (Elephants should NEVER sit on couches.) Is George dreaming or just plain crazy?? Before long, his friends see the elephant as well. Or do they? SURELY they too aren't going crazy like poor George? So no one says a single word about the gigantic creature lounging in the flowerbed ? until something happens that finally breaks this very awkward silence. With delightful text and charming illustrations, Genevi?ve C?t? tells the silly and whimsical tale of an elephant that is seen ? but is not necessarily believed!

From the Publisher
C?té’s gentle message is put across with appealing wit.

This thoughtful allegory can be an excellent starting point for discussions of fact versus fiction, faith and trust, and self-confidence versus peer pressure.

(Author, Genevieve Cote) causes readers to fall in love with the oversized intruder even though it wreaks domestic havoc and exhibits questionable houseguest behaviour.
