Collins, Ross. The Elephantom. PICTURE BOOK. Templar Books, 2006. $16.99. Content: G
When an uninvited elephantom shows up one night after dinner, and wreaks all kinds of havoc on the house getting the little girl in trouble, she’s more than frustrated with her home life. She tries and tries to tell her parents and grandma about the elephantom, but they don’t seem to believe her. It isn’t until she meets Mr. Spectral and he gives her a box that she’s able to get rid of the elephantom. For good.
The story is imaginative and the illustrations easily show the reader who are living and who are phantoms.
