Barroux’s Where’s the Elephant Out Now
April 20, 2015
Barroux’s Where’s the Elephant was released by Egmont UK last week, just in time for Earth Day. The Guardian featured the near-wordless picture book in an article titled, “Which books deal with climate change for younger children?” The article’s writer says that the book “powerfully demonstrates the devastating effects of deforestation as Elephant, Parrot and Snake find their simple game of hide and seek is no longer possible as the trees of the forest have been cut down to make way for houses, road and cars.” Barroux’s beautiful illustrations paint an important message about climate change for young readers. Where’s the Elephant isn’t to be missed.
