There’s an elephant hiding in her bedroom. The little girl knows it. It’s a genuine Elephas maximus. But no matter where she looks, the elephant evades her.
Throughout the book stuffed animals appear in the background: her stuffed bear, a plush penguin in the bed or a tiger doll tossed on the floor.
In the last pages the reader catches hints of the menagerie of real animals that occupy her imaginative life: a tiger, a polar bear, and a penguin. On the final spread, the girl starts to coax the elephant out of hiding by sliding her a cup of tea.
