Book Overview

One day a tired old elephant plods out of the forest and falls asleep in a farmer's barn. Amid the ensuing commotion, six curious blind mice enter the fray:
'... An elephant is like a wall, ' says the oldest mouse, as he falls against the elephant's massive, solid side. 'No, ' says a younger mouse, touching one of the sharp tusks. 'An elephant is like a spear '
A tree... a rope... a snake? Each mouse has his or her own interpretation after touching different parts of the elephant. But then the huge creature awakes - and only then is the full wonder of his being revealed.
Based on a classic Indian fable, Jude Daly's new picture book, set in the South African countryside, is an inspiring, multi-layered allegory.
