Review: Ella WHO?

Ella WHO? Ella WHO? by Linda Ashman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A missing elephant is befriended by a young girl just moving into her new home.

Colorful and sweet digitally-rendered illustrations cannot, unfortunately, make this story feel original or fresh. While there are elements that are amusing, there are so many books about unusual pets that this one is bound to get lost. Strictly No Elephants is an example of an excellent book about elephants as pets. Paired with "Ella Who?" it would make for an elephantine thematic storytime or lesson. But overall, this book feels predictable and unoriginal.
