Elephant's Child

by Kipling, Rudyard

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
