KIRKUS REVIEW

In flat, wobbly-lined, solid color cartoons reminiscent of Byron Barton, and without a word from start to finish, an elephant moves in to the home and the life of a smaller, shapeless human (?)--and upsets both with his litter, clumsiness, and destructive presence in his host's bed, bathtub, car and boat. The visitor finally leaves backwards through a crumpling doorway--pulled off, the last frame reveals, by a lager elephant, presumably its parent. In one door and out the other then, with approximately two minutes' worth of viewing in between.
