This is a cute picture book story that provides instructions on how to catch an elephant. Thankfully, it also provides instructions on what to do next so any young child will know exactly what to do once it’s caught – my favorite part was when the elephant needed a photo for his passport. I do think kids will enjoy it since the idea of catching an elephant is taken to the extreme fun of it all and then comes back down to reality very slowly. I did find a few parts or words that were confusing: the portion about ‘suspicious elephants’ and some of the words, like “tons’ and ‘gallons’ might not be words they quite understand the meaning of yet.
Thank you to Netgalley and Clavis Publishing for opportunity to review this adorable picture book.
