AN ELEPHANT? by Lorna- Illus. Balian


Email this review


Amusingly cartooned illustrations in black and white touched with red portray the ""Six blind men of Indostan"" and their famous encounter with the elephant. The author illustrator has made a simplified version of the John Godfrey Saxe poem. It is considerably shorter and chants aloud well. (Last year, Paul Galdone's beautifully illustrated The Blind Men and the Elephant appeared -- 1963, p. 104, J-38 -- which gave the full Saxe version.) The size and price indicate this book's potential as a pick-up item in bookstores.
