Product Description

Product Description

After a parrot makes fun of Sooki’s big ears, long nose, and wrinkled skin, the “saggy baggy” elephant isn’t too sure of himself. But once he meets some beautiful creatures who look just like him, Sooki celebrates with a joyful “one-two-three-kick.” For over 50 years, parents and children have treasured this tale, with gorgeous art by Gustaf Tenggren, the illustrator of The Poky Little Puppy.

I remember this book from my childhood and I get teary just telling people about it. It's the story of a baby elephant who is lost in the jungle and gets made fun of by the various other animals for the way he looks. Then he's found by a great herd of gray elephants who tell him he's a perfectly wonderful little elephant. Every child should have this book. Bill Cosby should read this book; he's probably already written his own version of it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Saggy Baggy Memories 10 Feb. 2014
By Vez82
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a delightful, vintage story. I bought this as a sentimental gift for my Mother, although every member of the family is over the moon as the older generations are in awe of such a favoured childhood classic and the younger generations are enjoying it for the first time. Predominently a childrens book, but if you remember this title, it is enjoyable whatever your age.

5.0 out of 5 stars My son really enjoys it! 3 Jan. 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My son got fascinated by the story, always full of tricky surprises, either the tiger or the crocodile wanting to nibble off some of Sookie's extra pounds! Thanks to the saucy parrot we introduced the concept of hurting anothr person's feelings!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great little book! 27 Nov. 2004
By boxwood100 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Honestly, it's hard to go wrong with a Little Golden Book and this one is no different. It's a story about a little elephant who likes to dance but when he does so, he's disturbing a mouthy parrot, who in turn, tells him his skin doesn't fit him. The baby elephant tries to make his skin fit, gets a tiger to volunteer to chew some of it off, then meets up with a crocodile who volunteers to eat his ears, then meets a lion that would just like to eat him in general (there was no python in my book!). But, the baby elephant is saved by a herd of elephants and they all take up dancing. The parrot stopped laughing at the baby elephant then. It's a very cute story and if you have elephant lovers in your house, it's particularly sweet. The pictures are just darling, especially the one where the baby elephant is crying. They're just very well done. A great book and a great find - it's read daily in our house.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best childrens book 7 Sept. 2001
By Robert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
When I first met my wife she had this book (Saggy Baggy Elephant) and what made it unusual was the books actual size was about an inch and a half to two inches square. Just as a joke one night I asked her to read me the story of Sookie the Saggy Baggy Elephant in which she did. I fell in love with that book for sentimental reasons but the more it was read to me I realized its message is so good for children. I highly recommend this for anybody with small children. We lost that little book and this was back before computers were so popular that when I went looking to replace it I had a very hard time finding it in print. After a long exhaustive search I found a printing company that had a couple of copies and I think after paying about 40 to 50 bucks to get that book I wrapped it up and gave it to my wife for Christmas. The tears in her eyes when she saw that book again told me that she loved the story of Sookie the Saggy Baggy Elephant as much as I did. A gift I know she will never ever forget getting. A great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for anyone 13 Feb. 2005
By David A. Edmondson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
One week as a jr. high camp counselor, I was writing down names on a sign-up sheet with this book as the writing surface. Some girls came up that said they were bored, so I offered to paraphrase the book for them.

It was quite possibly the best story I could have told them. As a story about self-image and how we are all beautiful, that we are exactly as we should be at that point, it is perfect for kids and even junior high girls. It is a message we don't hear nearly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming Story 10 Mar. 2007
By Donna Gordon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a fun and charming story of a happy little elephant that meets a tactless parrot. This parrot comments on the saggy skin of the elephant. He tries to improve himself, but without success. Sad and self-conscious, the little elephant decides to hide in a cave where no one can see how unattractive he is. Very soon something wonderful happens, however, and our sweet friend is happy once again. This children's classic will touch your heart and have you smiling.
