A delightful romp in search of an elephant on a day when there is nothing to do. Some days just call for an elephant hunt. Reading this book will give you all the advice you need on what to take with you and how to proceed into elephant country.
The delight here is that there is an elephant hidden on each page unbeknownst to the narrator/guide. If you are lucky enough to be reading this to a happy young listener, invite him/her/them to see if they can find an elephant in the picture. Sometimes you don't see the whole elephant but you will get enough of the pachyderm to make you say, "Oh there it is!" Happy elephant hunting!

What to do on a dull gray day? Head into the wilds and look for an elephant. You will need a pair of binoculars, a blanket, a flute, some food, a little imagination, and a lot of curiosity. Look and listen closely, because elephants can be anywhere. And watch out, because if you're not careful, the elephant may find you first! With pleasing prose and "now you see it, now you don't" artwork, Kate Banks and Boris Kulikov's How to Find an Elephant takes readers on a spirited romp that will both challenge and delight.--from the publisher
