Monkey and Elephant are very good friends, very good friends with nothing on the agenda. So they decide to go gadding. "Gadding?" said Elephant. "What's that?" "Gadding," said Monkey, "is walking along, looking around, finding something fun, stopping awhile, then moving on." Along the way, Monkey and Elephant meet up with some old friends, and three new ones, too. Beginning readers will love the antics in this cheerful ode to friendship, family, and the joys of serendipity.
