KIRKUS REVIEW

Another modern fable from the creator of Frog in Love (1989): to defend himself against Crocodile's practicing of his violin, clearly audible through his apartment wall, Elephant takes up the trumpet. Their quarrel escalates so much that they finally knock the wall down--and discover that they can play together. An engaging reworking of a familiar theme, expressively illustrated by the award-winning Dutch artist.
