Have You Seen Elephant?
Elephant wants to play hide and seek. You can play too. But you’ll need to try your best—he’s VERY good! He can even hide behind a lamp, or a small tree...
A small boy and his elephant play an absurd game of hide and seek in this beautifully illustrated picture book that will have young readers shouting out loud in delight, and adults laughing too, as Elephant hides, in full view. Perhaps the little dog sees him, perhaps not.
This game-inside-a-book celebrates imaginative play and is perfect for sharing with children who will love being better at finding the elephant than the boy. Watch out for the tortoise, too…
David Barrow is a graduate of the Cambridge School of Art and his debut picture book, Have You Seen Elephant? has been shortlisted for multiple awards.
Praise for Have You Seen Elephant?
"Best of all this book will stand the test of time as there's something new to be found on every page as you reread" -- The Bookbag UK
“Beyond the sheer absurdity, children will delight in details, such as the wide-screen TV the elephant holds in one scene, the child’s dad so focused on the soccer game on the screen that he asks, ‘What elephant?’ and the sly alterations to the family portraits on the rear endpapers. Younger audiences will be screaming ‘There it is!’ from the get-go.” -- Kirkus Starred Review.
