The Elephantom Fun playful idea, the colors of the illustrations are cool. The National Gallery of Scotland had this really cool exhibit around Christmastime where they displayed art from established children s illustrators and up and coming artists they had mentored As soon as I saw the art from this book, I feel in love, even without the accompanying story, the concept was wonderful Then, imagine my joy a few months later when I see this book in the window of the Oxfam used bookstore for only a pound The story was everything I hoped it would be I can t wait to re The National Gallery of Scotland had this really cool exhibit around Christmastime where they displayed art from established children s illustrators and up and coming artists they had mentored As soon as I saw the art from this book, I feel in love, even without the accompanying story, the concept was wonderful Then, imagine my joy a few months later when I see this book in the window of the Oxfam used bookstore for only a pound The story was everything I hoped it would be I can t wait to read this to Violet when she s older What Do You Do When A Ghostly Elephant Won T Leave You Alone When A Phantom Elephant Turns Up Uninvited And Starts Getting A Little Girl Into Trouble, She Has No Idea How To Make Him Go Away But Her Grandmother Happens To Have A Menagerie Of Phantom Pets Herself, So She Knows Just Who To Go To For Help The Shopkeeper At Spectral Son He Gives Her A Box Does It Hold The Solution I can t remember without looking at the book and it s inside the house right now, while I m outside in the sleepout just when I bought it, but I m pretty sure it was after both my kids were too old for picture books Obviously it appealed to me It s not one of those brilliant books that delight with their cleverness, but the idea of a phantom elephant creating havoc is most amusing At first, one thinks it s going to be a story about an imaginary elephant, somewhat like Meh, it is a cute story but I thought that the author could have donewith the story It is short and sweet and the illustrations are really flowing, soft, and lovely I think that this book pails in comparison to the few children s books I have read today so that might alos be why it is underwhelming. A young girl has a phantom elephant living in her house It causes mischief and gets her in trouble Her parents can t see it and don t believe her When she can t take it any , she goes to her grandma for advice Her grandma believes her because her grandma has many ghost pets Following her grandma s advice, she is able to rid her home of the Elephantom This is an imaginative story that many children will enjoy. What do you do when you are stuck with an imaginary elephantom and you get blamed for everything Great picture book showing that sometimes seeing things that others can t isn t always the best thing and that sometimes Grandmas know just what to do. Whimsical art makes this picture book a delight It s a funny idea and is well done. A humourous and imaginative text. A girl is haunted by the ghost of an elephant, which makes messes and other such young readership friendly issues Of course, the girl s parents don t believe her But her grandmother has lots of ghost pets and knows just how to get rid of an elephantom I don t like the resolution Just making it someone else s problem isn t a good message.
