Lumpy The Elephant

Lumpy is treated as an outcast by the other toys because he is so much bigger and less agile than they are. They never include him in their games so he always feels lonely and sad.

One day Lumpy’s companions find themselves faced with a serious predicament. Freddy the Frog is trapped in a dark, scary place and his friends can’t get him out. Who will save him?

To everyone’s surprise, Lumpy steps forward to save the day and gains a new found respect from the other toys. This is a charming story that describes how an individual’s unique talents and abilities can often go unnoticed.
