"Stand Back," Said the Elephant, "I'm Going to Sneeze!"
Patricia Thomas, Wallace Tripp
(Lothrop, Lee & Shepard Books, April 23, 1990)
“A picture book filled with giggles.” —Publishers WeeklyAll the animals are in a panic. The elephant's sneeze would blow the monkeys out of the trees, the feathers off the birds, the stripes off the zebra! Even the fish and the fly, the crocodile and the kangaroo know what a catastrophe that sneeze would be. "Please don't sneeze!" they beg....This classic story of an enormous sneeze in the marking, told in sprightly nonsense verse, is fun to share with a child at home or as a read-aloud at school. It's sure to make even wriggling little ones pay attention and join in!
