I just couldn’t resist a book about an elephant! Plus, look at that cover, isn’t it adorable?
In this fun book we meet with several friends who are in a playgroup, they are having the greatest of times (I love that slide into pillows part, I want that too!), and then a new person, or well new friend arrives. Because Humperdink isn’t a human, he is an elephant! And he is more than eager to play… but you can already guess that elephants and tiny little human things just don’t go together. I just wanted to hug everyone when things didn’t go right. He just wants to be part of the friendship. He just wants to play!
But the kids quickly find a solution and so begins a wonderful adventure that had me smiling from ear to ear. It was such a fun and sweet thing and I loved seeing the whole group having a lot of fun. Sliding, stomping, climbing, swinging, and more!
The ending made me happy! I am so proud of Humperdink, and so proud of the kids for accepting him! They all seem to have a great time, and I would love to join.
The illustrations are just wonderful, so sweet and lovely and fit with the story so well!
All in all, Highly Recommended! This adorable book about friendship and acceptance is one that will be loved by many, I am sure!
