Elephant Island by Leo Timmers – Our Review


Our Review…

This book reminds me of one of my all-time favourite picture books, Stuck by Oliver Jeffers. In Elephant Island, Arnold is a seafaring elephant, an explorer and adventurer. Until one day, a huge wave sinks his boat. Arnold swims through the ocean, very conveniently using his trunk as a snorkel. Eventually he finds a small island to stand and wait on. As a variety of ships arrive, Arnold tries to step onboard, each time sinking the new ship. As this pattern continues, Arnold and his new friends use the broken ship parts to create a new ship, big enough for everyone. This book has a hilarious twist at the end and will have everyone in the house laughing in no time.
