Where's the Elephant?

by Barroux - £6.99  Egmont UK Ltd (Egmont Books Ltd) (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781405271387 | ISBN 10: 1405271388

A visionary picture book from the genius of Barroux, which pairs a beautiful wordless storytelling experience with a powerful message.
 
What starts as a game of jungle hide-and-seek quickly turns into something more significant as Barroux's illustrations convey the consequences of deforestation upon the animal kingdom. Barroux adopts the familiar 'Where's Wally?' search-and-find format to introduce young readers to environmental issues, but as the forest begins to disappear, elephant becomes easier to spot.
 
Where's the Elephant? is a deeply poignant read remniscent of Benji Davies' The Storm Whale and is devastating in its simplicity. Children age 3 and up will be captivated by Barroux's unique illustration style and the book is designed to encourage parent and child discussion.
 
Recommended by Mumsnet, The Guardian and The Sunday Times. Also longlisted for the Kate Greenaway Award.
