Excerpt

Stanley was trying to help Mom make pizza, but SLOSH he spilled the oil, SPLOOF he sprayed the flour, SPLAT he tipped over the bowl of tomato sauce.

 

“Stanley,” said Mom, “why don’t you go out and play with your ball?”

“But I want to help,” Stanley said.

 

“Okay, then,” said Mom. “Run to the grocery store for more tomatoes.” She handed Stanley her shopping bag, some silver coins tucked safely in the pocket. “Buy yourself a treat at the bakery with the change.”

 

Stanley bounded off, tossing his ball. Up it soared . . .

 

down it crashed.

 

“My house!” cried a mouse. “My cozy house. Smashed to bits and pieces.”

“Oh, Mouse!” said Stanley. “I’m sorry!”

“Where will I eat my meals?” asked Mouse. “Where will I sleep tonight?”

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Kleven's (A Carousel Tale) gentle story offers a feel-good spin on the tried-and-true theme of unlikely animal friends. Mixed-media collages playfully underscore the difference in size between Stanley, a young and often clumsy elephant, and Mouse, whose pumpkin house Stanley inadvertently demolishes with his ball while playing in the yard. 'My cozy house. Smashed to bits and pieces,' laments the distraught mouse. Equally dismayed, Stanley offers to make her a 'surprise house.' On a trip to town with Mouse, the elephant surreptitiously collects an array of items, including a cardboard box, napkins, flowers, and twigs. The recycling bin on his front porch supplies additional building materials for the charming house he assembles for Mouse, complete with a table fashioned from a jar lid, a leaf pillow, a bottle cap plate, and decorative stamps as wall hangings. Sunny, outdoor scenarios and busy indoor scenes provide abundant details to keep readers' interest. And given how many times Stanley is made to feel guilty or embarrassed about his bumbling nature, his triumph feels all the sweeter. Ages 2 — 5. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
"Synopsis" by , Stanley the elephant, who's very clumsy, accidentally smashes Mouse's house, then promises to try to make a new one.
