Mr. Elephanter

By Lark Pien
Illustrated by Lark Pien

Come visit the Elephantery, where Mr. Elephanter looks after the peppy elephanties! A charming, quirky picture book debut by an acclaimed cartoonist.

Early every morning, Mr. Elephanter arrives at the Elephantery to care for his diminutive charges, who greet him with toots and trumpets. There are hugs and hellos all around! They all eat pancakes, paddle and splash in the neighborhood pool, and parade through the bustling city. After naps, Mr. Elephanter pretends he’s a tunnel, tower, and bridge, while the elephanties play all around him. In fresh watercolors exuding warmth and whimsy, Lark Pien introduces the doting Mr. Elephanter — and the most adorable miniature creatures you’ll ever meet.

  • Debut picture book from an award-winning comic artist and colorist
  • The only book on the market to feature the very adorable elephanties
  • Reassuring story about caregivers--parents, nannys, foster parents, grandparents, teachers, etc.
