Beautiful pictures

Bought for my son as he loves elephants but there weren't that many elephant pictures in it. Still a good read although not as engaging as some of his other titles.

A surprising hit!

This book was a present for a 5yo birthday boy! I read it when it arrived and was a bit unsure of its reception, The ending is ambiguous and the story is pure fantasy. I was wrong. He loved it! The idea of little elephants was one that he found enchanting. Every page of the wonderful pictures was examined for clues. He adored the page where the elephants, by now with wings, fight the locusts. but most of all he accepted the open ending easily and spent quite a while trying to work out various satisfactory conclusions for himself! This book does what so many don't do any more. It made him think and think hard. He really loved it! Actually I, as his grandma, think that the best bit is that it is about elephants, and tiny ones too. There's nothing wrong with that!

Not what we were expecting

This book is probably more suited for older readers because the story line is more advanced. It was not quite what we expected but very imaginative. We prefer some of the other Graeme base stories like Uno's Garden and Animalia
