How did you find out about this book? A girl and her animal friends try to find out who told the reader about this super-secret book. Harvey, the elephant, admits to telling the secret. He likes to share secrets rather than keep them. The girl and animals comfort Harvey and admit that they tell their family and friends secrets too. In the end, the girl decides they should tell everyone about the secret book.

In this meta picture book, the reader is directly included in the conversation as the girl and a friendly group of animals discuss who told the reader about this secret book. Its colorful and inviting pictures add to the creative way that it opens up a conversation about secrets: which ones are acceptable to keep and which ones should be told. After all, some secrets are too good to be kept—like a good book.
