About the book

This delightful book will have kids giggling as a serious, kind of grumpy, elephant (Kit) munches on his bag of peanuts and gets more and more annoyed at a spirited little monkey (Kaboodle) who wants to share his bounty.

Kaboodle tries everything possible to change the elephant's mind, he:  juggles china cups and plates to persuade him.... No!!, actually places his head inside a lion's mouth.... NO!!,  flies a plane upside down showing off his aerial expertise... NO!!, and he even performs dangerous bungie jumping exercises. But alas the elephant's response is still an emphatic... NO!!! 

Finally Kaboodle learns the secret to having that yummy peanut released for him to enjoy.  Can you guess what it might be?  The book contains a valuable life lesson for little ones and if put into action many wonderful things will be granted to them and they will be held in high esteem by all.  There is an added twist at the end of the book that will make kids laugh. 

I love the simple, uncluttered illustrations and the expressions portrayed by both characters.  The colours are bright and cheery and imagination reigns.  I love the book and highly recommend it.  "Please" get a copy of the book to share and enjoy.  "Thank you very much!"

Chris Robertson is just a big kid at heart who happens to write and draw Children's Picture Books. His first Little Golden Book, "The Tickle Book" by Heidi Kilgras debuts in May '17. "Giraffes Ruin Everything" by Heidi Schulz from Bloomsbury Publishing and "Where Do Pants Go? by Rebecca Van Slyke from Sterling both were released in Spring '16. 

His book, "Harry and the Hot Lava" speaks directly to the imagination of a child, while "My Yellow Umbrella" hit the #1 spot on Amazon's Bestseller list for Baby & Toddler Color Books, Bedtime and Dreaming and Children's Game Books.

Chris's other books include the Amazon's Best Sellers, "I'll Trade My Peanut-Butter Sandwich" and "Kit and Kaboodle". He broke into the Children's book field in 2005 with "Little Miss Liberty" published by Chronicle Books then subsequently by Scholastic Books in paperback. 

Chris's whimsical cartoon style feels light-hearted and carefree which seems to perfectly match his humorous writing style. He lives in Pasadena with his wife and three boys.
