This is Judy Sierra's very first book, and it represents her love of folklore. Elephant has sent out a challenge to the other animals. "No one can bring me down," he says and then challenges them all to a wrestling match. Judy's rhythmic style harmonizes with the beat of the monkey's talking drum. This is a retelling of a folktale from Cameroon, Africa and teaches us that small does not always mean weak, and bullies need to beware.
