Review:
What happens to children that get and have everything they've ever wanted? Well, they become spoiled rotten, ungrateful, ill-mannered little booghers! Meet Ellie. She has everything and continues to want more. And on top of that , she's bossy.


She wouldn't eat or sleep or brush her hair.
She wouldn't smile or play or do her homework.
She wouldn't even get out of bed until she got what she wanted.


Her father pleaded with her, but she wouldn't budge until she got an ELEPHANT! He fussed and fretted and made a lot of calls and finally Ellie got her elephant. Ellie made demands to her elephant but he wouldn't budge. As a matter of fact, he took over all her stuff, and Ellie threw a tantrum. The tables had turned. The Elephant had his own agenda.


He wore her best clothes.
He ate her breakfast.
He played with her toys.
And if he didn't get what he wanted he had an enormous ELEPHANTANTRUM!


How will Ellie get back all that she holds so dear?
This lively story with cheery multi-colored pictures and patterns will have little ones giggling and wondering what will happen next. Simple sentences make learning to read fun and easy. Parents and teachers can use this tool to teach manners by showing and discussing with little ones how to treat people the way you want to be treated and to always say please and thank you.
