Monkey and Elephant

author: Carole Lexa Schaefer
illustrator: Galia Bernstein

series name:
Candlewick Sparks

Monkey and Elephant are very good friends. The live in the jungle, which is sometimes very hot! So the two friends set out to find a shady spot. On the way, Monkey complains that Elephant is walking too bumpity, too ziggy and zaggy. And Elephant complains that Monkey is being too bossy and too sassy. Will these very good friends find shade before they become very bad friends? Lush with funny adjectives and action words, this fresh take on the tale of unlikely pals, brightened with playful, graphic illustrations, is pitch-perfect for newly independent readers.

Monkey may scamper and Elephant galump, but they're the best of buddies as they search for shade. That is, when they're not bickering about how to get there!
