Strictly No Elephants

Lisa Mantchev
Book Type: Picture

A young boy discovers that having a tiny pet elephant makes it hard to fit in since no one else has one. In fact, The Pet Club allows dogs, cats and fish, but the sign on the door is clear, “Strictly No Elephants.” Undaunted and loyal to his pet friend, the young boy finds other friends with different pets to form their own pet club. Celebrating diversity and inclusion, this lovely book captures the magic of all kinds of friendships.

Why I’m a Fan

Valerie Friedholm
Co-Founder, Elephant Books

I love a book that offers a teachable moment in a fun, relatable story for children. When a Pet Club doesn’t understand that pets come in all shapes and sizes, it’s a boy and his elephant that will capture the hearts of all readers with the sweet tale of how friendship includes everyone.
