About the Author:

Harriet Blackford is a school science technician at a secondary school and has a passion for natural history. She earned her degree in Zoology from the University of London; then began her career there as a lab technician in the zoology department. Harriet took some time off to raise three children and care for the growing number of family pets including stick insects, rats, cats, several dogs and a snake called Kellog. Manja Stojic is an extraordinary author-artist whose picture book, Rain, was a New York Times Best Illustrated Book in 2000. Manya grew up and studied in Belgrade, Serbia and has travelled all over the world. She now lives and works in London with her husband, best-selling children's book author and illustrator Ken Wilson-Max, and their young daughter, Luba.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1–3—As in Tiger's Story (Boxer Bks., 2007), this lovely book subtly introduces general facts about the subject animal through a simple tale of its first few years. Mother elephant stands over her large baby, sheltering her with tree-trunk-size legs as the youngster takes its first wobbly steps. Then the little one learns how to use her trunk to drink water and to eat grass. When in danger, she is protected by the herd. As time progresses, another calf is born into the extended family, and it is Elephant's turn to protect the new arrival from the farmer's noisy machinery, leading it back to the safety of its elders. The large text is well placed on the warm, sun-drenched paintings that show the elephants and other animals in the lush green pastures and dry yellow grasses of the African savanna. Children are sure to enjoy finding the duck that appears on almost every spread. An author's note elaborates on the few facts mentioned, giving children a good introduction to the world's largest land mammal.—Kristine M. Casper, Huntington Public Library, NY
