"Stand Back," Said the Elephant, "I'm Going to Sneeze!" 

by Patricia Thomas (Author), Wallace Tripp (Illustrator)

See all 11 formats and editions

All the animals are in a panic. The elephant's sneeze would blow the monkeys out of the trees, the feathers off the birds, the stripes off the zebra. Even the fish and the fly, the crocodile and the kangaroo, know what a catastrophe that sneeze would be. "Please don't sneeze!" they beg. . . .
The classic story of an enormous sneeze in the marking, told in sprightly nonsense verse, has been newly illustrated in full color to delight a new generation of fans.
