Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"With relaxed, informal words and realistic illustrations, this boisterous picture book brings children close to exciting facts about African elephants in the wild." — BOOKLIST

Elephants are the biggest animals on land, and they live in big families, too. So who can keep them in line? Grandma! In lively prose interspersed with fun facts, 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.

Synopsis:

In lively prose interspersed with fun facts, Jenkins spins a striking story about a no-nonsense matriarch in a herd of African elephants and her remarkable brood, while Bates brings the great beasts to rumbling, lumbering life in full-color illustrations.

About the Author

Martin Jenkins, a conservation biologist, is the author of several nonfiction books for children. He says, "I first saw wild elephants in the Masai Mara Reserve in Kenya, where a big family of them was making their way across the savanna. Ive seen elephants lots of times since then, but Ill never forget that first family, strolling across the plains without a care in the world - that was magic."

Ivan Bates has illustrated many books for children. He says of GRANDMA ELEPHANT'S IN CHARGE, "I have always found elephants to be fascinating creatures, capable of both extreme strength and tenderness. This, along with their mighty stature and a wonderful setting amid vast land- and skyscapes, makes them a joy to draw."
