Visually awesome, full of facts, figures and insights about African elephants and their lifestyles. Initially drawn to the book by the cover art, but the facts and details proved to be just as captivating on the inside. Great book to read with kids and many watercolour drawings to enjoy!

This nonfiction book is fascinating! Elephants are majestic creatures and the facts in this book will keep you turning the page. But beyond that, this picture book uses the picture book format in a totally unique way, with captivating illustrations that are also informative. A job well done!
