Through the Elephant's Door

(3) 1-3 Translated by Sophie B. Watson. Illustrated by France Cormier. A boy and his elephant friend spend a rainy morning in a museum, where--rather than damaging art as the guard expects--they foil a robbery. This short book (translated from the French) has plenty of fun. Everything in the illustrations is just a little off-kilter, and much of the humor comes from the juxtaposition of the deadpan text with the slightly exaggerated art.
