Artistic elephant Ellie is back, this time in a musical adventure! Since Ellie saved her home with her wonderful paintings, the zoo is back in business and the animals are more energetic than ever. All except for Lucy the giraffe, who hasn't been able to sleep with all the noise.
Determined to help her friend, Ellie tries to tone down the ruckus and organizes the animals into an orchestra. But is it possible to conduct the cacophony of the zoo into beautiful music? This charming story celebrates compassion, clever problem solving, and the joy music and art can bring to our lives.
"Ellie calmly stands by her friend’s side as each sleep aid is explored without success. When Ellie hears Betty Bluebird sing a lullaby to her babies, she has a new idea. She enlists the aid of Gerard, the wise gorilla, and organizes the animals into musical sections, just like an orchestra. She helps each animal find his or her tune. With patience and practice, Ellie changes the nightly noise in the zoo into a beautiful song that helps Lucy finally go to sleep.... Readers will find a simple plot and compassionate characters balanced with glowing pictures for a satisfying story." — Kirkus Reviews
