A baby elephant is lost and alone in the forest, when a herd of buffaloes come along and take him into their fold … what is he now, and elephant, or a buffalo? The little elephant decides to stay with the buffaloes as, despite their physical differences, he feels he belongs with them.
This book touches lightly on the themes of adoption, loss and integration.
We loved the bold retro-style woodcut illustrations. Our young reviewers enjoyed the story, especially the animal noises.
