Grandma Elephant's in Charge Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

An entertaining, educational look at the everyday life of a family of elephants - who never forget who's in charge.

Elephants are the biggest animals on land, and they live in big families, too. So who can possibly keep them in line? Grandma After all, she's been around long enough to know where all the best watering holes are, how to gather the tastiest food, and how to sniff out danger. In lively prose interspersed with fun facts (did you know that an adult elephant eats 1,000 pounds of food a day?), Martin Jenkins spins a striking story about this no-nonsense matriarch and her remarkable brood, while Ivan Bates brings the great beasts to rumbling, tumbling, lumbering life.
