Monkey and Elephant and a Secret Birthday Surprise

author: Carole Lexa Schaefer
illustrator: Galia Bernstein

Candlewick Sparks

Monkey lets Elephant in on a secret — it’s Monkey’s birthday, and Monkey does not like birthdays. But Elephant also has a secret: he has trouble keeping secrets. When Elephant learns that Clever Rat has made some party hats and is inviting friends over to see them, Elephant wants to turn their gathering into a party for Monkey. But how will he do it without giving away Monkey’s secret?

Shh! It’s Monkey’s birthday. But that’s a secret. Can Elephant keep the big news under his party hat for one whole day?
