Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This energetic book takes young readers on a journey with a very curious baby elephant who has one question on his mind: What do crocodiles eat for dinner? But whenever he asks this question, he gets a spanking! Though heand#8217;s never seen a crocodile before, the baby elephant sets out to the banks of a river to find the answer to his question. Geoffrey Patterson has simplified the original text for a younger audience without losing any of Kiplingand#8217;s much-loved turns of phrase. Elegant and whimsical illustrations give a fresh, vibrant look to this classic story.

Synopsis:

This is a version of one of the best-loved Just So Stories. First published in 1902, this unique and hilarious tale tells the story of the 'satiable Elephant's Child who, because of his satiable curtiosity, asked too many questions which always brought him too many spankings. A wonderfully imagined tale exquisitely illustrated by Jan Mogensen, this book will delight children-- and their parents--time and time again.
