KIRKUS REVIEW

On April Fool's day, Bo, an elephant in the circus which has just come to Tannersville, gets lost and entertains the whole town. Fog (Tannersville is on the sea) and Bo's coloring (he's been painted red, white and blue) make a ""pink elephant"" of him and lead to many false accusations, and Bo tangles with a bulldozer, disturbs the second grace at the public school, etc. It's obvious, but the healthy hybrid of nonsensical situations and Slobodkin's realistic cartoons are amusing and ingratiating.
