It’s hard to cover up an elephant in the room, as the young protagonists of Eric Barclay’s charming book Hiding Phil discover. Three children (and their trusty dachshund) find an elephant at the bus stop! His name is Phil, and he is awesome at playing. He’s great at skipping rope. His trunk is his own personal slide. He can’t be beat on the seesaw. Everyone just loves Phil. Except maybe Mom and Dad. And here they come now! The kids desperately try to hide Phil, but he won’t fit in the dog house, and he sneezes under the big pile of leaves. Maybe if they disguise him as a club house, the parents will be fooled. No such luck! The elephant has to go. But maybe our friends can still avoid having to say goodbye to Phil forever… Look for this fun, brightly illustrated story at the library today!
