Jeremy exiting his class room seat, bumped into Stella sending her sprawling into Peter, causing triple embarrassment and Stella screaming at Jeremy “You clumsy elephant, watch where you’re going”, which resulted in the class trumpeting their amusement.
So the name Clumsy Elephant stuck and whenever he entered the class Jeremy was greeted with trumpeting calls and laughter, which was okay at first, but overtime became irritating and so Jeremy decided to confer with his teacher to come up with a plan.
The next morning at the end of the math lesson, Miss Kelly announced to the class that she had a surprise for them and loudly clapping her hands beckoned Jeremy forward from outside the class, dressed as a circus ringmaster, carrying a large object covered with cloth .
Jeremy swept away the cloth to reveal a doll house with four little mice scurrying inside doing zany tricks, chasing each other in circles, cartwheeling on mini trampolines, riding up and down on a teeter totter and maneuvering tiny skateboards around the house.
Jeremy gave a sweeping bow to his class mates but in doing so swept his arms a little too wide and knocked the dolls house from the table, sending it crashing to the floor, with the mice escaping and scurrying all around the classroom, causing great hilarity, with the boys chasing the mice and some of the more timid girls screaming and jumping on top of their desks.
The class gave a great cheer and Jeremy gratefully acknowledging the accolades from his class mates became known as Jeremy the Magnificent from that day on.
