I couldn't believe it when I was able to find this for my own 18 month old daughter, but there it was on amazon. I didn't think she would like it until she got a little older because it's definitely wordier than a lot of her other books but boy oh boy was I wrong. My daughter absolutely loves this book, and now we've started to read other story books to her as well. This is definitely her favorite but we've also had some good luck with "Annie and the Wild Animals", "Engine, Engine No. 9", and "The Best Nest".
The book is all about Grandma Tildy who is willing to buy all sorts of pets who enrich her life and help her around the house. She repeats over and over to the pet man that she is willing to buy all sorts of animals "But No Elephants". At the end of the book she gets stuck with the Elephant anyway but even he proves to be useful.
I think my daughter likes all of the animals which she can point to and recognize; she likes the household activities mentioned such as cooking stew and giving an animal a bath; finally I think she really likes some of the repetitive elements which help her predict what is to come.
