Emily is an ostrich with attitude, and Albert is an unflappable elephant. Whether Emily is curing a cold Albert didn't know he had, teaching him to dance correctly (ballet, of course) or explaining to him how to read the right way (the way that includes her), Albert is always happy to oblige. In five funny, warm and wonderful stories, this irresistible duo will delight readers of all ages.

The final section has the most verve, but directly recalls one of Marshall's plots: Albert wants to read, and Emily objects, "I don't think it can be a good book if it makes others feel lonely while you are reading it."
