Description

A funny, heartwarming picture book by two New York Times best selling creators about an elephant who will not move, the townspeople who really wish he would, and a young girl who teaches them an important lesson.

When Poe plants himself in the road and refuses to budge, the people of Prickly Valley try all sorts of methods to get him to go—but one thoughtful little girl works up the courage to do what no one else has done: asks him.

Balancing both hilarity and sensitivity, Poe Won't Go has the feel of a contemporary classic, reminding readers that there is power in one, power in listening, and power in being a friend.
