Elephant or Buffalo?

Elephants Never Forget written by Anushka Ravishankar, illustrated by Christiane Pieper, is a charming story about what makes for a real family. A story about belonging, friendship, and loyalty.

A baby elephant is separated from his herd when a huge storm comes along. He is lonely, tired, and hungry, but finally finds a group of buffalo that he can play with, eat with, and belong to. They become his family.

Then one day he meets his real family of elephants………….

Will he leave the buffalos?

Children will love the vivid, lyrical language – “Crraack! Flash! BOOM!” Ravishankar effectively uses big, bold words to bring the main character, a young elephant, and his jungle playmates to life.

Pieper’s illustrations “capture the mood” in this fun loving tale.
