Synopsis

Readers learn how elephants came to have long trunks in this classic fairy tale. “With restraint, respect and high good humor, Cauley has fashioned dozens of illustrations . . . that do not overwhelm the story. . . . About as fine a rendering as we are likely to see in what is surely among the rare best children’s stories ever written.”-- School Library Journal
