Before 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, before A Wrinkle In Time or A Separate Peace, there was... The Saggy Baggy Elephant! Well, for this reviewer at least. Lions and tigers and parrots and gators-- vey mir!TSBE is the very first book of which he has any memory at all, and no doubt it had more than a little influence on his eventual world view. The spirit of a book can indeed last a lifetime-- his original copy long since lost, this reviewer replaced it just a few years ago, and still takes it out now and then to review times gone by. In just such a reverie last autumn he came again upon the picture of the little pachyderm on page 16, and realized suddenly that this image is more emblematic of his childhood than he had ever hitherto suspected.

A baby in a stroller sleeps as the loud city noises (from ten horns beeping to two motorbikes roaring) surround it. That is, until a pesky chirp of one sparrow causes the baby to gleefully awake. The colorful illustrations throughout add a humorous, but accurate look at how the city beeps, toots, thumps and more. City and country children alike will enjoy counting backwards and learning about the hustle and bustle of city life. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
