Grandpa and Grandma are too busy, so their little grandson turns to his friend Elephant, who is always eager to play. A trampled flower bed, puddles of water in the bathroom, spilled orange juice, all kinds of mischief—they are all Elephant’s fault, the little boy says, when asked who did it by his grandparents. The little boy feels bad about telling on his imaginary friend the Elephant, but with his grandparents’ help, he finds the comfort and understanding of a loyal friendship. Clear and direct illustrations drive home a message about making and keeping friends.
