Book Review


Ella’s best friend is an elephant. They do everything together until Ella realizes that sometimes her friend being an elephant made things difficult. Suddenly she isn’t so sure that elephants make fine friends after all. Her elephant has all kinds of problems, like eating too much and blocking the view behind them at the movies. Ella tells the elephant that they are just too different to be best friends and sends the elephant away. Soon Ella realizes that she misses her elephant, but when her elephant has made friends with other elephants, it takes some convincing for the elephants to realize that humans can make fine friends too.
