Waa! Waa! Why is Albert’s favorite tree crying? And how can he cheer it up? From artist Jenni Desmond comes a warm and funny story about finding a new friend in a very unexpected place. Awake after his long sleep, Albert the bear can’t wait to spend time in his own special tree, which is always so quiet and peaceful. But not today. Today Albert’s tree is crying. How can he cheer it up? Albert’s friend Rabbit suggests digging holes for Tree to play in, but the wailing continues. Eating grass always makes Caribou happy, but an offering of grass does nothing to stop the noise (which is getting to be a bit much). “STOP CRYING!” roars Albert, but the bawling only gets louder. There’s just one thing to do: Albert climbs up to his favorite branch and gives Tree a hug. To Albert’s surprise, he hears a little voice say, “I’m afraid of the big hairy monster.” Who said that? And just who is the big hairy monster?

In this, Jenni Desmond's third nonfiction children's book about one of the large, endangered animals of Earth, we join a young boy as he learns about The Elephant . From Africa to Asia, the elephant makes its home. Light on their feet, despite their great weight, these magnificent creatures appear light and graceful because they're always walking on their tip-toes. They have excellent hearing and can detect the rumblings of other elephants from six miles away. And, just like humans being right handed or left handed, elephants can be right tusked or left tusked! The recipient of the 2016 New York Times Best Illustrated award for her book The Polar Bear, Desmond creates illustrations that are scientifically accurate, strikingly detailed, and beautifully rendered in collage, paint, and colored pencil.
