KIRKUS REVIEW

A junior style elephant joke pokes gentle fun at the favorite juvenile question -- why. It spins off from an older boy's flat statement, "An elephant never forgets." A stubbornly curious younger boy asks "why," gets one answer and proceeds from that to "how come" and pushes on through the variations until the answers come full circle to the original remarks about this remarkable animal.
