Description

Five goofy, greedy elephants are up against five teeny-tiny mice in this picture book parable for modern times.

One day, deep in the jungle, five elephants discover a new tree - a tall tree - and, atop that tree, the most mouth-wateringly delicious fruit any of them had ever seen. "MINE!" each elephant cries. "Mine, mine, mine, mine, MINE!" But who will get there first? And will the elephants spot the five tiny mice, planning and plotting, slowly approaching that tip-top branch?

With fresh vision, hilarious characterization and beautifully textured art, Anuska Allepuz tells a tale of teamwork and sharing; a comedy and fable with a contemporary edge.

"A fantastic story to encourage team work and sharing, as well to show that size and status are not everything." * Reading Zone * "[...] a delectable offering, with its wry humour, theme of the fruitfulness of cooperation and sharing and alliterative phrases to relish." * Red Reading Hub *
