Published by Piccadilly, 2000
Ephra is the smallest elephant with the biggest ears, but she never listens to her elders. She goes on her sweet way, thoughtless and happy, not seeing the problems she causes - until one day she jumps into a lake full of crocodiles and has to be rescued by the rest of the herd. The illustrations are full of elephant life and colour, of plains and hills and wildlife, and there is a page of facts about elephants for animal lovers. Is it true that African elephants have ears shaped like Africa and Indian elephants have ears shaped like India? Interesting!
