This book is about two children who are bored and they make a sign saying that they could babysit someone. There lived an old lady and she was desperate to see her sister but she could not because she had a pet elephant in the house. But then she saw the poster while walking the elephant. She gave them her elephant but they weren't expecting an elephant, they were expecting a baby!
She put a note on the doorstep then went off. It was hard for them to look after the elephant because they did the complete opposite things that the lady had written in the letter.
At the end they discover that she likes buns and found her eating lots of buns at the bakery.
It was a good story because it had more than just normal people in it. And they did funny things to make the elephant happy like put her in their bed. And it’s funny because they like mess and so does the elephant.
