Persnickety Elephant has an itch-a big one-and he can't reach it! While he isn't above asking for a little help, no one is up to the task. Turtle is too lazy, Snail is too slimy, and Alligator . . . well, Elephant isn't sure he wants his assistance. Does Elephant have to do everything himself ?

Jory John's signature deadpan humor pairs perfectly with Liz Climo's oh-so-innocent-looking animals to create a slyly ironic read-aloud that will leave kids and parents in stitches.

A cute book about an elephant who has an itch that he can't reach by himself. I think kids will find it funny and laugh quite a bit while reading this.
