Both funny and sweet, this intergenerational story trumpets one boy's boundless imagination -- and shows how truly infectious it can be. (Age 3 and up)

What to do when Grandpa and Grandma are too busy to play? Ask your imaginary elephant, of course He's tons of fun, even if he squashes the flower bed, breaks a few things around the house, and gets a little too splashy in the bathtub. But Grandpa and Grandma will understand -- really. With his trademark vibrant, energetic illustrations, Petr Hori1/2cek introduces us to a delightfully enterprising child, some wisely laid-back grandparents, and the most endearing elephant you'll ever want to meet.
