An Elephantasy

An Elephantasy

By Maria Elena Walsh

- +

What would you do if you woke up one morning and found an elephant at your door? An elephant with a note around its neck which said "My name is Dailan Kifki. Please don't be alarmed at the fact that I'm an elephant..."? Well, you would probably adopt him too, wouldn't you?

But when Dailan Kifki falls ill and ends up at the top of a tree, only the fire brigade can get him down. Unfortunately, the fireman who arrives seems more interested in flying away with the elephant than bringing him back to earth...

And so a charming, surreal and very funny adventure begins, complete with fold-up forests, grumpy dwarves and a highly suspicious umbrella.
