The Sunday Times
This captivating story of a strong friendship with each friend supporting the other, despite misgivings, will give heart to younger readers, many of whom are trying out friendships for themselves, and learning of the sometimes tentative moments between friends, where support is given without question.
The whole series is witty, heart-warming, and thoroughly entertaining, for kids and adults. It revels in the innocence of childhood, the give-and-take of friendships, and learning life’s lessons.
A timely and very wonderful part of this book is that it addresses the elephants in the room (which are both Gerald the elephant and his elephant-sized anxiety) with warmth, dignity, fun and sparkle.
