The Lovereading4Kids comment
A favourite of June 2011 Guest Editor Michael Morpurgo, who remembers this as: "The story my mother used to read me most often, because I asked for it again and again. I loved the sheer fun of it, the music and the rhythm of the words. It was subversive too. Still my favourite story, and this was part of the inspiration for my recent novel Running Wild which is also about an elephant."
The Elephant's Child by Rudyard Kipling
Rudyard Kipling's delightful story telling how the elephant got his trunk is given a stunning new interpretation by a top artist. Geoffrey Patterson has abridged the original text for a younger audience without losing any of Kipling's much-loved turns of phrase. Elegant and whimsical illustrations give a fresh, vibrant look to a classic story.
With vibrant illustrations, the text has been abridged for a younger audience. Headteacher
