When your elephant gets the sniffles you have to jump on the problem as quickly as possible, because the sniffles can become serious if you are not careful. They can lead to sneezing and that is something you do not want. At all.

So, what you must do is to put your elephant to bed, prop him up with lots of pillows, and give his favorite stuffed animal to snuggle. For a while you will be able to keep your elephant quiet and entertained, but when he gets bored – which he will – you are going to have to become creative to keep him happy so that he gets better. After all, the one thing you cannot have is an elephant who is sneezing.

Little children are going to enjoy this sweet little book with its funny story and amusing artwork. They will be especially amused when they see how the story ends.
