“Errol the elephant has a problem. All of his friends at the Acacia Tree School have wonderful talents except for him, and when his teacher announces that the school will have a talent show, Errol worries that he will have nothing to contribute. Through much trial and error - and with a little help from his Dad - Errol eventually learns that there is much more to him than a big nose, and puts together an exciting and special routine that only he could do.”

All the young animals at Acacia Tree School have a skill to show off in the upcoming talent show--except Errol the Elephant. The only remarkable thing about Errol is his lack of talent--and his unusual nose. Soon he discovers just how extraordinary he is. Full color.
