About this title

Synopsis:

Elephant's new neighbors, who love playing jokes on each other, are disappointed when they find that they can't surprise Elephant and make him jump.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3 A group of animals in a small village takes great delight in shouting boo and wearing scary masks to make each other jump. Elephant, a newcomer, thinks them all slightly foolish and insists that " 'there are two things elephants never do: they never jump, and they never forget.' " Of course the other animals rise to the challenge. Elephant does jump, but for a completely unexpected reason. Sly humor and a twist at the end carry the story along. The artwork is stylized and the colors rich but low-keyed, matching Elephant's low-key response to all the shenanigans. Children will enjoy the humor and no doubt start their own round of games to make people jump. So be prepared. Judith Gloyer, Milwaukee Public Library
