Synopsis

""Barbara," asked Audrey, "how would you like to ride an elephant?"" ""Will I have to get off my pillow?"" Audrey seeks adventure. Her cat Barbara seeks naps. So not only does Audrey have to figure out how to get them to the Taj Mahal so that they can ride an elephant, she must also convince her very doubting and very lazy cat that, by attaching a sail (made out of Audrey's quilt ) to their bathtub, they can indeed cross the ocean to India. Meet two best friends who are opposite in every way, but who know that the best adventures are the ones you share.
