Theme Thursday: But No Elephants!

One book that I have fond memories of reading as a child is "But No Elephants" by Jerry Smath. It's a delightful little tale of a lady, Grandma Tildy, who lives alone in a house. Each day, a pet salesman comes to her door, offering a different pet for sale, and each day her response is the same: "Very well, but no elephants." Until the last day, when the pet man offers an elephant. At first Grandma Tildy refuses to take the elephant, but eventually she takes him in.

When I saw a copy of this book at a local Goodwill, I had to snatch it up! And now it's one of my daughter's favorite books as well. She especially likes the part where the elephant gets stuck in the door. So today's theme is inspired by the animals that are featured in this story:
