Publisher Comments:

From the instant she sees him at the water hole, Elephant is curious about Giraffe. And while Giraffe doesn't have much to say, Elephant is more than happy to make the first move. From inviting herself to bake pretzels with Giraffe to ordering him around while playing pirates, Elephant s bold and brassy style takes some getting used to. But still waters run deep and silent Giraffe seems to have no problem making himself heard. The result is a friend for the ages.

There are simple children's books, which don't do well in repeated readings, then there are books that merely look simple, but reveal themselves to be deeper and more delightful with repeated readings. This book happily is the latter. My children enjoy this each time we read it, and they find something new every time to observe about the drawings or the words. It's also wryly entertaining for me to read to them. Plus you're supporting a Northwest author by buying this good book!
