Jerry Todd was elated when Red Meyers' birthday present (from a rich uncle) turned out to be an elephant.

Visiting in Ashton the day the elephant arrived, Red's parents hurried home when told frantically by Aunt Pansy that the "gang" was putting on a wild circus in the barn.

A skylarking story this, full of interesting new characters, that will fill you with giggles. For imagine Red and the elephant eloping! The pair wound up on the Bibbler farm, near a haunted house. Br-r-r-r! And here the sick elephant lost its tail under circumstances that will bewilder you.

Poor Red! His predicament (which, however didn't effect his appetite) and Jerry's amazing detective adventures combine to make this one of the most fascinating books of the "Jerry Todd" series.

Author Bio for Lee, Edward Edson

Author Image

Edward Edson Lee (September 2, 1884 in Meriden, Illinois – September 28, 1944 in Rockford, Illinois), who wrote under the pen name of Leo Edwards, was a popular children's literature author in the 1920s and 1930s.

He wrote five series of books: the Jerry Todd series of sixteen books; the Poppy Ott series of eleven books; the Trigger Berg series of four books; the Andy Blake series of four books; and the Tuffy Bean series of four books. All of the series were interrelated in some way; the Todd and Ott stories took place in the town of Tutter, Illinois, a fictional town modeled on the town of Utica, which Lee experienced in his childhood. The supporting characters in the Todd and Ott books — "Red" Meyers, "Scoop" Ellery, and "Peg" Shaw — were real boys that Lee befriended around the time he began writing the stories while living in Shelby, Ohio.
