What a “very proper young man” is Elliot. If you don’t believe me, just read his. book.
When Elliot’s dad noticed Elliott sitting with all his stuffed animals, thinking “Kids, masses of noisy kids” in response to Dad’s proposal of going to “Family Fun Day at the aquarium,” he never dreamed he would soon be sitting at the aquarium reading his National Geographic
while Elliott discovered P-E-N-G-U-I-N-S !!
While his father was distracted, Elliot asked, “May I please have a penguin?” “Sure,” replied Elliot’s dad, handing him a twenty dollar bill. Elliot selects the smallest penguin and puts him in his backpack.
What follows next when Elliot arrives home and lets the penguin out is hilarious, disastrous, boisterous FUN!
Third graders can read this book themselves. Others might ask parents or grandparents to read it to them.
It is a darned good, funny book.
p.s. Two copies of this book are available at Rae’s Reads in Alvin. Call Rae first, since shop hours have not yet been set.
