Sample text from The Elephant and the Mountain
The greatest of all these animals was the elephant, regal and majestic and towering over all the animals that came to drink and bathe.
The water flowed endlessly from the mountain and life was good. Vast herds of elephant came every morning, wallowing all day in the mud and sometimes chasing away myriads of colourful birds.
But day by day, week by week, and year by year the snow steadily vanished from the mountain.

Reviews and readers' comments
My 6 year daughter loves the book. She read it by herself and then told me and her Mum all about the story and the challenges that the elephants face. We should do everything we can to raise awareness of environmental issues and children's stories like this are the perfect vehicle. We owe it to young people to show them the beauty and wonder of the natural world, as well as its fragility. - Ross Piper, Zoologist and Explorer^ Top of Page ^
