Product description

One little boy living on a farm in rural Texas gets a big surprise when he discovers tiny flying elephants under his bed. But his mom doesn't like critters in the house, so he tries to keep them a secret. Until one day they escape from his bedroom and cause havoc in the house. But when locusts invade the farm and start to destroy crops, the elephants come to the rescue! Bestselling author-illustrator Graeme Base has created a unique story with his signature illustrations, which are sure to appeal to young readers. Praise for "Little Elephants" "The minimal text wisely recedes for Base's gorgeous paintings, and the story's very implausibility is a large part of the delight... An offbeat and winning mix of earthiness and enchantment." --"Kirkus Reviews" "This is a strange, magical book. Base's lush paintings ground the fanciful story in its realistic rural setting. At the same time, the landscapes are suffused with a golden glow that casts a soporific charm over the whole book. Interesting visual details abound, from the mouse's thimble helmet to the prophetic circus posters on the walls. A great book to enjoy one-on-one." --"School Library Journal" "Graeme Base has done it again. His beautifully detailed paintings are such an important part of this story." --"Library Media Connection"
