Title:   "An Elephant Called Slowly" Novel
Author:   Ernest Dudley
Illustrated:  
Illustrator:   n/a
Basis:   Non-Fiction
Category:   Photo Documentary
Level:   All Ages
Based on screenplay by Bill Travers and James Hill. A novel describing return visit to Africa (Kenya) of couple who played human leads in the movie 'Born Free'.   -- >
Not much plot ... the couple travel from England to Kenya and spend a month or so bungalow sitting for a friend. They befriend three elephants who hang around the bungalow; go out into the bush and observe animals; revisit the man whose lions were featured in the movie 'Born Free'.

The writer apparently had a challenge to teach as much as he could about the various birds and animals in the area while telling the brief story in ninety-nine pages. As a result, the dialogue is unnatural, contrived, and rather clunky. A pleasant book for those who care more about the subject matter than the writing quality.

Title:   "An Elephant is Soft And Mushy"
Author:   Sam Gross
Illustrated:   Yes
Illustrator:   Sam Gross
Basis:   Fiction
Category:   Cartoon
Level:   All Ages
A collection of cartoons by Sam Gross, previously published in The New Yorker, National Lampoon, Cavalier, and numerous other magazines. Many are sensitive to the times in which published; many are very funny; many would fail the test of 'political correctness' prevalent today.

The title comes from a parody of the six blind men and the elephant in which the men are feeling the elephants parts and declaring it to be like a tree or like a snake, etc. One blind man is a short distance away and has his hands on a pile of dung and he proclaims that an elephant is soft and mushy.

Title:   "Elephant Over The Alps'
Author:   Cynthia Pilkington
Illustrated:  
Illustrator:   n/a
Basis:   Non-Fiction
Category:   Adventure
Level:   All Ages
In 1959 a group of mostly young Brits undertook an expedition to determine the likely truth of the story of Hannibal's crossing of the Alps with 37 elephants some 2,000 years before. Using histories by Polybius and Livy to guide them through modern France and Italy, they set out with a young female Asian elephant named "Yumbo" borrowed from a private zoo in Turin.

This book, written by one of the expedition members, recounts the British Alpine Hannibal Expedition's daily progress in this attempt. They succeeded in crossing the Alps from France into Italy. The tale is nicely told in a straightforward yet pleasing manner. The book contains a number of photos of the elephant, dubbed "Jumbo" in English, at key points along the journey.

Thoroughly entertaining as well as informative.

Author:   Theodore J. Waldeck
Illustrated:   Yes
Illustrator:   Kurt Wiese
Basis:   Fiction
Category:   Culture
Level:   All Ages
Nicely told tale of two creatures; Jamba, a young bull elephant, and Bomi a Bantu boy of 16.
The tales merge when Jamba is captured in a drive to obtain trainable bulls to work in logging of ebony. Only Bomi is able to control Jamba until Jamba runs away. A year or so later, in a near-death experience, Jamba returns to Bomi and all ends well.

This novel is based on a lot of factual material gathered by the author in his African explorations which were prior to World War II. Since then naturalists have discovered some things which prove certain of the author's notions false. A good story nonetheless.

"On a quiet morning in 1986, in a small German circus town, a boy and an elephant were born. The boy was named Bram, the elephant Modoc. The two were raised as siblings, and when news came that the circus was being sold, thirteen year old Bram did the only thing he could imagine: He stowed away to be with Modoc."

"Modoc is an epic for the ages, destined to be a classic, and sure to be cherished by readers young and old."

From the dust jacket: "This is no ordinary book, quickly read and then forgotten. It is the sort of book a boy or girl of Junior High school age will add to the family's permanent library. Into an exciting narrative, Mabel Cobb has woevn a complete study of the habits and behavior of the Indian Elephant.

"Old Phoebe is a circus elephant, beloved and respected by all who have seen her perform. And yet, in spite of her happy lot, she still ongs for the days of freedom she knew in the jungle. Through a remarkable device of story-telling, we are allowed to see into Phoebe's mind, examine her thoughts and thus trace the complete pattern of her life   --- >
as well as the lives of all elephants. There is a great beauty, tenderness and honesty. in this story. We suffer with her through drought, and battles with tigers, and elephant hunts; we feel her grief as she is captured and forced into the servile ways of domesticity; we share some of her pride as she relives the heroic tales of her kind in myth and history, such as in the exploits of Hannibal's elephants, which are related fully.

"The adventures in this book compare favorably with any exciting tale of fiction. But this book is not strictly fiction -- it would be a mistake to regard it ias such. It is natural science presented in fascinating story fashion.

"All the color and danger of the Indian Jungles, the pagenatry of a rajah's state procession, as well as the gaiety of 'the big tent', come alive, not only through Mabel Cobb's writing, but in the many drawings and paintings by Claude Allen Lewis."

The Golden Hour radio program. From introduction ...

"My Dear Children:
These old, old tales from India have been favorites for many, many years; some have come down to us from the early days of Buddha, and were taken from a book, called the "Jataka Tales", telling of the Buddha's previous existences. Some of these old tales have been translated from the Pali by Eugene Watson Burlingame, and they have also been retold for us in attractive form by Ellen C. Babbitt.

These stories are somewhat similar to stories which we have all known in another form; for instance, our first story of "The White Elephant" is somewhat like the story of Androcles and the lion. ...

All these tales I have told to you many times over the radio; now I am glad to place them in your own hands to read and retell yourselves.

Level:   All Ages
This is a bizarre and completely delightful book for children of all ages ... probably those as young as three could understand the story.

It involves a flying elephant named X22 who lives in space and has lost his saucer. He happens upon Arthur, an earthling elephant boy and together they go in search of X22's saucer so he can eat stardust again and regain his healthy glow.

The art is especially engaging. I would guess the originals were done with heavy use of pastel chalks or crayons along with charcoal and some pencil work. very free-flowing and humorous.
