Elsie Elephant is a board book that will simply delight you and your young reader. The story begins at night with a NOT so tired Elsie…sound familiar anyone? It turns out that Elsie has a lot to say and as she stomps through the jungle, trumpeting loudly she wakes other animals along the way.
The colours draw you into the story on those first few pages of the book, the shades of green give you the feeling of being out among the trees and plants in the garden, the tortoise face a beautiful rosy complexion whose eyes show an old but warm and happy soul. The colours and illustrations continue to amaze as I turn the pages, each majestic and beautiful creature brought to life by the artist ability to bring us the African Jungle through her artistic ability.
