A shipwrecked elephant makes his tiny island a home for the many friends who come to the rescue, building increasingly intricate constructions that turn Elephant Island into a fun park city.



I didn’t like this book because it wasn’t very nice as the elephant was stuck.

I didn’t really like this book because I don’t feel like it taught me anything. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone.

I like the illustrations in the book. Arnold was amazing for expanding the island to accommodate so many animals. I like the snake best because it looked like a sea monster. I would recommend this book to everyone who likes sea.
