A Look Inside the Whimsical World of Zola’s Elephant

Zola’s Elephant is a story about imagination going completely wild! Illustrated by two-time Caldecott-honor winning artist Pamela Zagarenski, this tender, witty friendship story by New York Times bestselling author Randall de Sève, shows how assumptions often cause us to misjudge–and miss out. But with a little courage, new opportunities and new friendships can be made.

“Children will love the surprise of what is really in that box, and how the two girls discover a wonderful friendship packed with imagined elephants, hot-air balloons and even whales. Vivid pages abound with the gem-like layered mixed-media paintings in the signature style of this two-time Caldecott Honor Book illustrator. Whimsical and surreal details, both real and make-believe, celebrate the joy of pretending with a new friend.” —Booklist, starred review
