Oliver Elephant

author: Lou Peacock
illustrator: Helen Stephens

When Noah goes Christmas shopping with his mom and baby sister, he’s glad to have his toy elephant, Oliver, along in the boring shops. They play peekaboo and hide in a dolls' house, and Noah even dances Oliver across the displays. But just as Mom has checked off the last thing on her list, disaster strikes: Oliver is nowhere to be found! And the department store is VERY big. Will retracing their steps be enough to reunite Noah and his beloved toy elephant?

"A sweet, charming story of overcoming familiar difficulties during the hectic holiday season, with the help of those who love you." – Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
