The Lovereading4Kids comment

This retelling of Kipling’s Just So story is thoroughly appealing and effective. It’s bright and attractive to look at – John Joven’s illustrations give a real sense of the African setting and his little elephant is a very lively character – and the text is just right for reading aloud. The music of Kipling’s original is still there – the crocodile still basks in the great, green Limpopo River, smiling a dangerous smile – but it’s gentle enough for the very youngest to understand and enjoy. The story is full of drama and comedy too, making this a lovely book to share and talk about. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

How the Elephant Got His Trunk by Anna Milbourne

Elephants didn't always have long trunks - that is, until one day when the elephant's child could contain his curiosity no longer, stepping closer than he should have to Crocodile... This witty, captivating and much-loved tale is sure to have children screaming, "again, again, again!"

A charming, illustrated retelling of one of Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories. A gorgeous book for children to curl up and listen to at bedtime.
