Everyone knows some version of this popular children's hand-clapping rhyme, but in this adaptation, the elephant's fateful jump over the fence is just the beginning of the fun. Popular children's author Mary Ann Hoberman has elaborated on this well known tale to create an absurdly funny story children will want to sing, chant, read, and clap to again and again. And as her previous books have proven, Nadine Westcott's playful watercolor illustrations are the perfect complement to any familiar childhood nonsense rhyme.
