Indeed, he finds much more than he ever hoped or dreamed.

Reviews

Amid the cheery storytelling and dear illustrations, the very straightforward scariness surrounding solitude and self-reliance surfaces, along with some coping strategies. . . This jaunty little elephant provides a mammoth lesson for young readers about bravery, grit and fortitude. -- STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus Reviews Throughout Pomelo's Big Adventure, a gentle spirit of exploration leads the protagonist and the reader onward. Oversize pages filled with Mr. Chaud's witty, bright drawings that pop amid white pages reflect the elephant's sense of curiosity and openness to possibilities. -- New York Journal of Books Someone goes on a journey is one of the guiding precepts of narrative
