Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
When Hansa was born at Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo, she weighed a mere 235 pounds and was the apple of her mother's eye. Mom had traveled more than 2,000 miles to a Missouri zoo to find a suitable mate, and her 22-month pregnancy had culminated in a bouncing, if rotund baby. Under mother's loving care, Hansa grew quickly: At her first birthday party, she was toting more than 1,000 pounds! This adorable pictorial celebrates Seattle's favorite toddler.
Publishers Weekly
At birth she weighed 235 pounds; a year later she tipped the scales at more than 1,000. Hansa: The True Story of an Asian Elephant Baby by Clare Hodgson Meeker, illus. by Linda Feltner, photos from the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, tells the story of the elephant's amazing birth (the first in the zoo's 100-year history) and educates readers on the animals' habits, habitats and care. Full-color photographs by Hansa's handlers provide an up-close perspective; backmatter contains additional resources. (May) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
