The Elephant's Child (Hardcover)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
The tale of how the elephant got its trunk is one of the most beloved of the Just So Stories Rudyard Kipling wrote for children. The insatiably curious elephant's child peppers every animal he meets with questions about the mysterious crocodile who lives on the banks of the Lompopo River. When he finally meets the crocodile, he nearly becomes dinner. This rollicking story and Jonas's Laustroer's vibrant art have the makings of a modern classic.

"Lauströer [...] brings readers sweeping spreads, filled with energy and movement. There's a lot of humor here, too [...] I hope Lauströer has more picture books in his future." —Kirkus Reviews on The Hare & the Hedgehog
