Format: Hardcover

Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 4

What did you like about the book? This is a sweet book about an elephant who has an umbrella that he loves to share with anyone who needs to seek shelter under it. One day the umbrella is blown away and lands at the feet of some very selfish potential owners. These particular animals have no intention of sharing and only want to use the umbrella for their own personal gain. Luckily, the umbrella did not approve and caught itself in the wind to find Elephant again. The illustrations are full of bright characters, with a muted, almost watercolor background.
