A heart-warming story with a message as big as an elephant, this fanciful tale of friendship between an eccentric lady and her beloved pet is as poignant as it is beautiful. When Mrs Bibi is told her pet elephant has to go, she reluctantly packs her bags and heads off somewhere where they can live together in happiness. But what they both leave behind is far bigger than the other people in the town could have ever imagined. Delicate artwork compliments messages of acceptance, tolerance, and love in this moving story.

"The story achieves the elegant simplicity of a fable--or, perhaps, a lost chapter of The Little Prince. Many readers will feel liberated by the ending, in which every child gets a new pet, but the real appeal is in the impossible details. A house is covered--like a quilt--with an elaborate floral pattern. The capital R in the type even resembles a tiny elephant. No matter how often children open this book, they'll always discover something new."--Kirkus Reviews
