Elephants can do lots of stuff; they never forget, for instance. But play hide-and-seek? Not so much.

Face it: Whenever elephants play this game with child friends, guess who inevitably gets found first? These giants' girth and height, not to mention trunks, account for their consistent failure to hide successfully. Now the Elephant Hobby and Sport League comes to the rescue with The Elephants' Guide to Hide-and-Seek, which features crafty ploys to help level playing fields. Wise pachyderms would do well to bring their vaunted memories to bear on its pages. Sample tips: hiding in a large bathtub with shower curtains and standing behind a humongous pile of unsorted laundry (the kind found in a typical kid's bedroom). Some don'ts? Cramming into too-small spaces, like doghouses, or pretending to be a lump in a bed. If nothing works, the guide also advises that elephants just be "it"—or simply accept the fun of being found. After all, "you love those kids!" This cute but slight tale mines humor from its snarky narration, voiced in the cheesy tone of a TV commercial. Cheery, energetic, expressive cartoons depict kids with varied skin tones and hairstyles playing in the park with their blue, bespectacled elephant pal as the latter demonstrates various tips outlined in the guide.

Lively fun. Readers may pick up some pointers for their own games of hide-and-seek. (Picture book. 4-7)
