Ella The Elegant Elephant Ella The Elegant Elephant

Written by Carmela D'Amico
Illustrated by Steven Henry

She’s younger than Babar, shyer than Lily, and every bit as cute as Olivia. Hang on to your hats, here comes ELLA!

Meet Ella, the littlest elephant in Little Village, who’s just a little bit shy. She’s moved to a new neighborhood and has to start at a brand new school. Luckily, she has her grandmother’s smashing red hat to wear for good luck. But Belinda Blue, the playground bully, doesn’t like Ella. And she doesn’t like the hat. It looks like trouble’s brewing on the playground . . . until Ella discovers just what a good heart (and great fashion sense) can do.

Filled with charming illustrations and introducing an unforgettable new heroine, Ella the Elegant Elephant is a victory for anyone who’s ever felt shy or dared to be different. We love Ella, and you will too.
