Tucked in bed for the night with Rabbit and Frog, Elephant feels something coming, but none of the three stuffed animals can figure out what it is

From Publishers Weekly:

At the start of Edwards's (Moles Can Dance) sweet snippet of a story, a stuffed elephant, frog and rabbit are tucked into a drawer in the room of a sleeping child. When Elephant suddenly sits up and announces, "Something's coming!" his companions try to tell him he's wrong. But Elephant knows better. Climbing out of the drawer, the trio futilely searches the silent house for clues. In an I-told-you-so mood, Little Rabbit at last declares, "Nothing's coming." And then "something" indeed comes-from Elephant's trunk, a sneeze so mighty that it propels his friends clear across the room. After a second, even larger sneeze, the three return to their drawer and fall back asleep. Kubick's effectively grainy pastel crayon art gives these stuffed animal characters a fetching, cuddly quality. Of special charm are Elephant's changeable facial expressions-and his dapper sailor suit. Ages 2-up.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1?Tucked into their toy box bed, Frog and Little Rabbit are awakened by Elephant, who tells them that "something's coming." The drowsy stuffed animals beg to differ, but Elephant is so insistent that they agree to help him search the moonlit nursery. The marginal suspense builds as the three friends look up the chimney, in the cupboards, and under the sofa, all to no avail. Elephant still insists that something is coming, and proves himself correct by sneezing a huge sneeze. This anticlimatic punch line is disappointing after the quietly building charm of the story. Soft pastel drawings against a comforting oatmeal background lend some interest to this mildly amusing bedtime story.?Anna DeWind, Milwaukee Public Library
