Meh. The kids weren't all that into Englebert the Elephant, which doesn't surprise me. I keep trying these books with rhyming text on them, and they almost never seem to like those kind of stories. I know
that, so I'm not sure why I keep checking out rhyming books! Crazy old aunt.
I thought this story was cute, my niece liked Englebert's name, and my nephew could not have cared less about any of it. I think that this would be a very enjoyable story to the right kid, perhaps to a little girl(?) who loves royal balls and stories about kings, queens, princes, princesses, and animals. :-)
