Mr. Elephanter by Lark Pien

Mr. Elephanter, a sort of elephantie nanny

This is another of my favorites. Mr. Elephanter is a sort of nanny to the little elephanties. He cares for them, sets them down for naps, and takes them to the zoo. After banana pancakes, of course. The elephanties say things like “poom” and “fwee” and I love them. I also love the hand done type and the beautiful illustrations. Those joyful elephanties make me almost as happy as Mr. Elephanter’s mustache. Thank you, Lark Pien for such a lovely little world.

Mr. Elephanter came out in September and was published by Candlewick Books.
