"Stand back," said the elephant,
"I'm going to sneeze!
I hate to alarm you,
But I don't wish to harm you..
My friends, I fear
It's clear.....
Oh, dear,
You'd better stand back, I'm going to sneeze."

This delightful old classic 1971 children's book, written by Patricia Thomas and illustrated by Wallace Tripp has entertained children (and adults) for over 40 years! It is a timeless book that even the children of today will love!

Bookk dimensions are 8 x 10 inches. There is a childs name written on the inside blank first page, along with a small sticker. It has slight shelf wear, small corner wear and a few smudges on the front & back cover. (Hardly noticable, but there.) It is in excellent condition for a 41 year old childs book!
