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’s
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.
