A simple game of hide-and-seek takes on a new dimension as a growing city encroaches on the jungle the animals call home.

Where’s the elephant? Where’s the parrot? Where’s the snake? And wait a minute — where are all the trees? Where will the elephant, parrot, and snake go now? A vibrant landscape in flux with three hidden animals on each spread offers parents and children an opportunity to talk about urban development and animal habitats.

About the Author:

Barroux is a Paris-based illustrator whose work has appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post, and elsewhere. This is his first book with Candlewick Press.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 3-With minimal text and bright, bold illustrations, Barroux introduces children to the topic of deforestation in a poignant fashion that invites discussion. By beginning with simple questions that ask the location of an elephant, parrot, and snake, he establishes a familiar seek-and-find narrative that is comfortable and engaging. At first, this is mildly challenging, as Barroux's acrylic and pencil creatures are cleverly hidden in their jungle habitat. This quickly changes, however, as trees are soon removed and replaced by houses, roads, and cars. Eventually, the natural environment is gone and a zoo encapsulates the cheery animal friends until they elect to bust free, making for an ocean raft and new island home. Each spread is full of stunning art, with the lushness of the diverse tropical leaves set against the increasingly uniform and stagnant buildings. The excitement of hide-and-seek soon turns to crushing loss, forcing readers to ask why this conflict is occurring. The animals' final flight, along with the contrast between cityscape and natural environs, conveys an important message regarding the ecosystem and the role humans play within it. VERDICT Although clearly written for a younger audience and highly recommended for all picture book collections, this introductory text can be used to spark discussion with elementary school students embarking on environmental studies.-Rachel Zuffa, Racine Public Library, WIα(c) Copyright 2011.

Book Description Egmont UK Ltd, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. UK ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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 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 2016 and Highly Commended Best Children s Picture Book in the Junior Design Awards (2015). Look out for Barroux s latest masterpiece, Where s the Starfish? Barroux s books include Uncle John and the Giant Cherry Tree, which won him the 2005 Enfantaisie Award, and the extraordinary Line of Fire, Diary of An Unknown Soldier which has received widespread critical acclaim. In 2015 Barroux won the first Parents, Babies, a Book competition for his work Chuut! which will be given to every newborn baby in the north of France. Where s the Elephant? won Silver in the Prima Baby and Pregnancy Awards and has been longlisted for the Kate Greenway Medal 2016. Seller Inventory # AA79781405271387
