" I happened upon this book and brought it home for my 5 year old son who's ALWAYS asking for someone to scratch his back. Very cute, very funny, and a little bit mean-spirited at the end...which still makes it funny. PS my son thought it was a riot! " said.

" I love Liz Climo's artwork and Jory John is always a hoot. I didn't like that the elephant threw away the hedgehog. I know my son wouldn't like it and it's not quite a storytime book, but I enjoyed the artwork and the very end made me laugh. " said.

" Get what it was aiming for, but it is just horribly mean-spirited and would only use it as read aloud in which I could gently guide kids to think about who elephant reminds them of in the real world (cough *Donald Trump* cough) and why they think his actions are wrong. " said.

" How does an elephant scratch its back? A tool of nature or wallowing in a mud hole. In this adorable book, an elephant asks other creatures of nature to help out. They might help out, but it won't do until just the right fellow comes along. Ahhh! Yet, there is a strange turn of events at the end! Readers might think about ways to be helpful to others after reading this book! " said.

" One of the best, funniest books I've read in a long time!*edit* So, okay, I see that a lot of people didn't like this book because Elephant turned out to be a not-so-nice animal. I don't disagree, but I also don't plan to read it to an impressionable tiny person. I read it to my friend (we are both adults...mostly) and we thought it was hilarious. " said.

" Super cute and funny. The illustrations make everything even better. Liz Climo has the most adorable illustration style and I'm happy to see her work in published works. This is definitely one for your child's or niece/nephew's bookshelf. One fault is at the end when the elephant finds someone to scratch his back and then (view spoiler)[TOSSES HIM AWAY. I still laughed but still rude (hide spoiler)] " said.

" This book is too cute! Elephant has an itch on his back and he just can't reach it. A host of animals try to help but they either can't reach him quick enough, look like they might eat him or scratch so lightly they just tickle him! Is there any animal out there that can help him?!?Wonderful yet simple text and illustrations make this a fun and delightful read. " said.

" Interesting concept, an elephant with an itch on his back has to find another animal to scratch it. And he asked all kinds of animals before he got his relief. This is not the traditional build up of a story but a premise that is silly and gets a solution after many mis-tries. The whole story is written in speech bubbles and not sentences. Silly and could be a fun read aloud to small ones. " said.
