Mr Elephant: Ever Wondered Why Elephants Have Long Trunks and Wrinkly Skin? Paperback by Sarah Glover


Have you ever wondered why elephants have long trunks and wrinkled skin? Join Mr Elephant on a journey through Africa to find out why.

African elephants are on the endangered list so Mr Elephant will let you know how you can help to look after this gargantuan species just by having a copy of his book. 

A delightful tale for children aged 5-7, encouraging them to think as they discover the dangers elephants face in a sensitive manner.



About The Author

Sarah Glover is a wildlife artist based in County Durham where she lives with her husband, their son and their cocker spaniel, Bonny. Sarah takes her inspiration for her artwork from the wildlife and nature she spots when walking Bonny. As an animal lover, Sarah has always had a soft spot for African wildlife, especially elephants, which are the lifelong inspiration for Mr Elephant. 


My Review

I enjoyed reading this book to my niece, while she enjoyed the beautiful illustrations.
Every child all over the world should have access to this little book, and my niece had tears in her eyes as I tried to explain what happens to the elephants for their tusks.
She enjoyed hearing how their skin gets so rough. Also how they have maps in their brains.
Yes, I highly recommend this book, and my niece is 4 while the recommended age is 5 to 7, so it depends on the child.
I received this book through Net Galley and Madador Publishing, and was not required to give a positive review
