Norman PhartEphant, Volume 1, is the story of a young African elephant adopted by a U.S. zoo. Norman learns a bit about geography, culture, and family structure while exploring the zoo and making friends. Despite Norman's gas, his adventures are a blast!
Norman PhartEphant is a very funny book. It was hilarious as I read to the boys about Norman’s different types of “sounds,” and it was even funnier when I tried to do the sound effects as I read the book.
Since we have the plush toy, we also thought it was amusing as we read the book while squeezing Norman's tail at the approrpiate parts.
The boys loved the images throughout the book—especially of the different animals in the zoo, which Little Music Man loved pointing out.
Norman PhartEphant is not only fun, but educational too, as we learned all about Norman’s former home in Africa, and his new friend Ty the Tiger’s home in India.
And now we can’t wait to meet Norman’s new friend from Australia in his new book coming out in 2010!
