An elephant never forgets . . . except Edmund! Join this silly elephant on the funniest shopping spree ever.

"Elephants always remember. Elephants don't get it wrong.
Elephants always remember. As long as they sing this song!"

Edmund isn't like other elephants: he forgets. A lot. Then, one day, his mother sends him to the store to pick up some things for his little brother's birthday party. To help him remember what they need, mama gives him a fun little song to sing . . . and a shopping list. But Edmund even forgets the list! Soon his purchases get sillier and sillier--like seven sassy dancing cats instead of 20 pointy party hats. Kids will laugh out loud at this delightful story and its humorous, dynamic art.
