Fred Forgets

fred-forgetsWritten by Jarvis

Poor Fred is an elephant who cannot remember what he was going to do next. His friend the Monkey plays tricks on Fred and reminds him of silly things that he was going to do, making Fred look ridiculous. When Fred finally remembers what he was going to do he gets some payback. The vibrant illustrations make this book stand out, but the text just doesn’t feel fun or happy. Monkey’s ideas are mean spirited and there is no lesson or friendship to end the story, only a squashed monkey.
