Just in time for the winter games, X.J. Kennedy follows up Elympics with Elefantina's Dream, illus. by Graham Percy. Here, the plucky pachyderm straps on her ice skates and, with the aid of a friend and the local ice man, not only makes the Elympic team, but completes a triple salchow, too. The crayon and colored pencil illustrations capture her hard work and triumph. ( Jan.)
