When Your Elephant Comes to Play by Ale Barba

A hilarious celebration of imagination--and pets--that will have kids laughing What s a boy to do when an elephant shows up at his door and wants to play?

Elephants are probably the best huggers around. With dozens of laughs, a big elephant sneeze, and a hug you won t soon forget, this book will make you wish an elephant came to play at your house too. Praise for When Your Elephant Comes to Play An excellent addition to any collection, this appealing tale is full of humor and easily extends imaginative play. -- Kirkus Astory as irrepressible as the cross-species pals it stars. -- Publishers Weekly A pleasant read about a little boy s big imagination, with creative, colorful spreads that will stay with readers long after the story ends. -- Booklist
