A Mammoth In The Fridge

A Mammoth in the Fridge Book CoverWhen Noah discovers a mammoth in the refrigerator, his horrified mother quickly calls the fire department.  The sly mammoth evades escape, runs through the streets, and finds safe haven in a tree.  Much to the firefighters’ dismay, the ice age mammal refuses to come down and he is left in the tree until nighttime when Noah’s little sister, Elsa returns to stealthily lure her friend back into her bedroom with a bunch of carrots.  With a last warning to her rebellious mammoth, Elsa climbs into bed surrounded by all of her secret far-fetched pets. Simple text and four-color, 1960’s era illustrations lead to a wildly humorous and clever conclusion. cc
