Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: "Kids will take comfort in this endearing -- and enduring -- tale of friends helping friends." -- BOOKLIST
Theodore the elephant has hurt his leg and can't meet his cousin at the end of the forest. What a pity! Of course, all the other animals are more than willing to give him advice. After all, that's what friends are for -- isn't it? Enhanced by Holly Meade's vivid collages, Florence Parry Heide's dry wit rings through this cumulative tale of a long-suffering elephant, his well-meaning friends, and a straight-talking opossum who shows them all what being a REAL friend means.
