A Great New Character in Children's Books

We are so happy we discovered Ella the Elephant! The illustrations are beautiful and the story here, about Ella and her mother's bakery, is so sweet. Ella sets a great example for little girls--she's smart, a great problem solver, and determined. She also wants to finish what she starts. I love the book as much as my daughter does. She will be getting all the Ella books for her birthday to add to our home library.

Wondeful Book!!!

This is a wonderful book and the pictures are beautiful. My four year old twin daughters love this book.

Wonderful, well-imagined picturebook series

I really love the "Ella" series... The books are nice and sweet, and presents a marvelously imagined, self-contained world that will strongly appeal to little kids. It has a similar feel to the "Curious George" and "Babar" books, except without all the weird, disturbing undertones that make those classics a bit troublesome. A great choice for some fun books that you don't have to worry about. (ReadThatAgain)

A Very Enjoyable Read

I bought this for my daughter who loved the first book in this series, "Ella the Elegant Elephant". Here, Ella longs to feel helpful while assisting her mother in their bakery. She embarks on a slap-dash cake delivery to prove herself adept, a journey that could spell trouble if Ella doesn't take it upon herself to finish up what she's started. In spite of the obstacles that ensue, she displays a tenacious handle on things. The message of striving for personal responsiblity doesn't come off as heavy handed, cloaked in slap-sticky scenes that are whimsical and funny, and finished off with a nice, quiet end that brings the tale full circle. The story is rich and the illustrations strikingly detailed. We are really enjoying this book.
