What to do when Grandpa and Grandma are too busy to play? Ask the elephant, of course! He’s loads of fun, even if he squashes the flower bed and breaks a few things around the house. Grandpa and Grandma will understand– really. In an intergenerational story that is both funny and sweet, Petr Horáček illuminates the power of one boy’s boundless imagination — and how truly infectious it can be!

Every night, tiny stars appear out of the darkness in little Sandy’s bedroom. She catches them and creates wonderful creatures to play with until she falls asleep, and in the morning brings them back to life in the whimsical drawings. When a mysterious new girl appears at school, Sandy’s drawings are noticed for the first time, but Morfie’s fascination with Sandy’s talent soon turns into something far more sinister.
