the Elephant's friend and other tales

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2013-01-26) Excellent Permalink

This title is beautifully illustrated with bright, highly detailed gouache and ink paintings. Stories by Marcia Williams are short, succinct, and humorous. In a picture book format, the eight stories are for brave readers who can handle consequences of foolish men and animals. Recommended
