PreSchool-K–When six mice agree to help an elephant friend by looking after her offspring, they discover that caring for Little Ellie presents a formidable challenge. It takes four of them to pull her stroller uphill while two push from behind. All six can't hold their own on the seesaw with her, and when it is time for a diaper change, they are totally appalled. Large, cheery color illustrations perfectly capture their struggles. Touches of realism are superimposed on the cartoonlike illustrations, with photographs of bowls on the breakfast table and of six coffee mugs beside the exhausted mice at the end of the day, as well as an enormous graphic of the baby elephant's turd. Children will delight in this funny, quirky story about baby-sitting.–Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY
