From the reviewers:
"Purposeful, but both informative and heartfelt."-Kirkus Reviews
Halsey and Addy's warm and expressive mixed-media collages incorporate vintage-looking illustrations and musical notation to emphasize the animal's various qualities...while remaining attentive to the affection between a mother and baby elephant."-Publishers Weekly
From the publisher:
Tracie Vaughn Zimmer has a long-standing affection for elephants, and it shows. This book is a celebration of these remarkable animals: their huge size, their affectionate parenting, their loyalty to one another and sometimes to humans, their voracious appetites, their amazing trunks, theirenjoyment of mud baths. Distinctive illustrations incorporating painting, collage, and found objects are a rich and playful counterpart to the text.
