Hardcover with DJ in Very Good (VG) condition. Sweet inscription, otherwise clean and straight.
Monty is a very young elephant, and his Mama is concerned for his safety. She tells him the two important things he must always remember. First, he must stay with their herd, where he will be protected from danger. Second, he must never forget how much his mother loves him. Then, Monty sees something bright and blue that is half-buried in the ground, and he thinks it might be a bouquet of forget-me-nots. He wants to bring the flowers to his Mama. Forgetting her words, he stops to dig it up, but when he looks up from his task, he discovers that his herd has moved on, and is nowhere in sight. As he goes looking for them, Monty finds many other animals grouped together—a flock of flamingos, a mob of meerkats, and a colony of termites. But now, the rain is coming, and Monty still hasn’t found his herd. What on earth can he do? This warm and gentle story for younger children features large color illustrations on every page.
