Summary
All of Theodore the elephant's friends give him advice, but none can solve his problem until the opossum announces friends are to help, not just to give advice.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: With a sly wink, Florence Parry Heide and Sylvia Van Clief offer a valuable lesson about true friendship, brought to life in vivid collage by Holly Meade.

"If I had a bad leg," says the crab,
"I would get rid of it and grow another one."

"It’s nice of you to give advice,"
says Theodore.

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? Florence Parry Heide’s unmistakable dry wit rings through this clever
cumulative tale of a long-suffering elephant, his well-meaning friends, and a straight-shooting opossum who reminds them all what being a real friend means.
