Before coming to Golden Books, he worked in the Disney studio, creating concept artwork of various characters for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Pinocchio. He died in 1970. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

When I first met my wife she had this book (Saggy Baggy Elephant) and what made it unusual was the books actual size was about an inch and a half to two inches square. Just as a joke one night I asked her to read me the story of Sookie the Saggy Baggy Elephant in which she did. I fell in love with that book for sentimental reasons but the more it was read to me I realized its message is so good for children. I highly recommend this for anybody with small children. We lost that little book and this was back before computers were so popular that when I went looking to replace it I had a very hard time finding it in print. After a long exhaustive search I found a printing company that had a couple of copies and I think after paying about 40 to 50 bucks to get that book I wrapped it up and gave it to my wife for Christmas. The tears in her eyes when she saw that book again told me that she loved the story of Sookie the Saggy Baggy Elephant as much as I did. A gift I know she will never ever forget getting. A great book.

This is a cute and fun story about a little elephant that doesn't quite fit in with his environment and tries to follow the not so sure advice of a parrot. It's fun to read with some good alliteration and rhyme. I have read it many times to my little daughter (currently 6 ½ months) and while it isn't quite as engaging as the Tawny Scrawny Lion, it's still a strong recommendation. Don't even give the age categories a second thought, this book should be read to and in the hands of babies and toddlers too.

I remember this book from my childhood and I get teary just telling people about it. It's the story of a baby elephant who is lost in the jungle and gets made fun of by the various other animals for the way he looks. Then he's found by a great herd of gray elephants who tell him he's a perfectly wonderful little elephant. Every child should have this book. Bill Cosby should read this book; he's probably already written his own version of it!

this classic children's book helps to teach children about self-esteem and being different. it's one most of us have read as a child, and one we should pass on to our children. it also has the wonderful illustrations of Gustaf Tenggren (who illustrated the poky little puppy).

This is an incredible book. It is a pleasant diversion into the past, or an excellent book to read to children. I can still remember my mother reading it to me. It teaches us that it is okay to be different and in time everything will work out.
