He danced doing the one-two-three-kick! Unmindful of the trees or bushes that fell about Sooki danced his days away. That is until, a parrot tells Sooki that is completely out of propotion everywhere.
His ears are too big, the nose way too long and his skin just never seems to fit him. Sookis happy bubble is broken. The poor elephant is keen to improve, but the nasty parrot has no suggestions.
Sooki tries to make his skin tighter by lifting it all up, but he ends up looking worse. Tummy tucks are no good for Sooki. A tiger offers to help by eating a few pounds off Sooki. The little elephant runs for her life and ends up in a pool. I hope I haven't spoiled the suspense of the story for anyone ;-.
July 29, - Published on Amazon. We bought a few of these golden books, but this was the only one with a weirdly stiff and wrong folding binding It feels like it will break if I try to widen it. However, the story is cute with a good message. Not our favorite for sure, but my almost 4 yr old kid seems to like it. January 3, - Published on Amazon. I remember this book, even though it must be at least 60 years since I read it!see

I didn't think it would still be in print, but here it is, and with good reason: the message is timeless - don't be ashamed of who you are; don't listen to what others say about you. So I bought it and loved it all over again. I want to pass it on to my grandchildren, but not yet.
I am still enjoying the story and the pictures.

This book is not the same as the original little golden book. The story is not the same and the quality of the book is not good. Although the story imparts the importance of identity, it doesn't embrace the idea that different types of creatures should respect differences in others.
The parrot mocks the elephant, other animals try to take advantage of him, and he's not happy until he is finally with his own kind.
I find it interesting that the book promotes accepting one's own peculiarities but not those of others. A reflection of its times. The message is limited and other books should be read to children to emphasize an appreciation of differences. Despite this drawback, the story is cute, and the message of confidence in your own identity is an important one for children.
The Saggy Baggy Elephant
This book is a fantasy, an elephant cannot conceivably talk and cannot be so worried about self image. This story is a little over played when it come to plot, and the climax of the story seems to have nothing to do with the initial problem the elephant wanted to solve. The author did not stick to one plot or the other, but instead tried to have two. Here at Walmart.
