Strictly No Elephants

Wolfie the Bunny reminded me of another book on my bookshelf: Strictly No Elephants by Lisa Mantchev and illustrated by Taeeun Yoo. This one is about friendship.

A young boy has a tiny elephant for a pet. They don't really fit in. Each day they take a walk. The elephant does not like cracks in the sidewalk, so the boy carries him over because that is what friends do. On Pet Club day, the boy takes his tiny elephant only to be met with a sign, Strictly No Elephants. Dejected, they head on home. On the way they meet a girl with a skunk, she and her pet were turned away, too. They decide to start their own club. Other kids with unusual pets start to follow them and one of the new friends points to a spot where the new club can meet. It has a treehouse, a tire swing and plenty of open space for the penguin, armadillo, porcupine, bat, narwhal and a giraffe to play. The sign on their clubhouse door reads All Are Welcome. If you want directions the tiny elephant will give them to you because that is what friends do.

The AR is 2.0.
