Praise

There’s a Horton-esque quality about Bernstein’s Elephant throughout, and both he and Monkey exude personality. This achievement in visual characterization is matched by Schaefer’s text, which employs controlled word choices and embeds careful repetition in support of the emerging reader. A welcome addition to the early-reader shelf.
—Kirkus Reviews

Schaefer’s rich and witty dialogue will charm and amuse early chapter-book readers. The digitally created cartoonlike characters are brimming with emotion and often surrounded by distinctive patterns of sunshine, leaves, and grasses. Children comfortable with Arnold Lobel’s FROG AND TOAD ARE FRIENDS (HarperCollins, 1970) and Wong Herbert Yee’s UPSTAIRS MOUSE AND DOWNSTAIRS MOLE (Houghton, 2005) will enjoy reading about Monkey and Elephant.
