Welcome! Here you can visit all of the characters from our Alexander, the Elephant Who Couldn't Eat Peanuts book series and their friends from all over the world!
Alexander isn't your typical elephant. He wears a baseball cap and sneakers, and he even has a peanut allergy! Alex is always learning new ways to keep himself safe from having a reaction. He has many friends in the International Zoo who understand what it is like to manage food allergies.
Lenny is the King of the Jungle, and he has a very powerful roar. It's no secret that cats love milk, but Lenny is allergic to milk and must drink something safe for him instead (he loves apple juice!).
Sally loves to balance colorful balls on her nose and swim in the water. Sally had a reaction once, when a new zookeeper accidentally fed her fish. Now she always carries her medicine with her because she never knows when an accident might happen!
Sophie is Alexander's cousin, and she helps watch out for him by making sure he is careful about his food allergy. Sophie realizes that everyone has something special that makes them unique. In Sophie's case, it's her extra-long trunk!
Terry the Owl is a great PAL to have. He reminds his friends who have food allergies to read labels, ask questions, and make sure they carry their medicine with them at all times. Look for Terry on other pages of the FAANKids website. He often appears to give advice and reminders!
Now that you've visited the characters from the United States, meet Alexander's friends from all around the world!
