I Do Not Like That Name

Written and Illustrated by Erin McGill

A girl, Sophie, and her rabbit, Herb, order an elephant off a cereal box, and when it arrives they discover they need to give it a name. This sets off a discussion of where names come from and what names mean. I loved the illustrations in this book. They are in a collage style that looks as though they were cut out and pasted on. I wish I enjoyed the story as much as the illustrations. I thought it fell a little flat. The illustrations are 5 star, but the story only 3.
