A delightful book for 3-8 year olds, and an intelligent and touching parable for any caregiver--especially those of us with 'creaks and wrinkles'!

Sweet book about a young elephant whose uncle takes him in when the youth's parents don't return from a boating trip. They have some everyday adventures until the uncle gets word that the parents have returned. One adventure involves a talking lamp, which they think may be a magic, wish-giving lamp, but we all really know that there is no such thing as a magic lamp, and, in fact, it was only a talking spider inside the lamp who was speaking. The colors are a bit too gray and muddy looking. Too bad, because the illustrations have interesting details. The elephants, of course, wear clothes and stand upright.I was concerned that a child might be frightened by the parents' being lost at sea, but other reviewers think that the disappearing parents who return help with separation anxiety. An advantage of talking animal stories is that there is no ethnicity ascribed to the characters, although, given the way language works, if you want to use singular pronouns, there is specified gender.The dedication to Charlotte Zolotow makes perfect sense. She also writes sweet stories of family relationships.
