Elly the Elephant is a rhyming picture book about making new friends.
Perfect for reading to young children as a bedtime story, or for young readers aged 5+
Elly lives alone at the zoo. She has many neighbours, but they are all so different from her and she does not know how to make friends with them. Instead, she chooses to play with her new ball all by herself.
When a gust of wind blows the ball over her wall, we follow Elly as she learns a valuable lesson about building new friendships, even with those that are different.
