Praise for Little Elephants
"The minimal text wisely recedes for Base's gorgeous paintings, and the story's very implausibility is a large part of the delight... An offbeat and winning mix of earthiness and enchantment."
"This is a strange, magical book. Base’s lush paintings ground the fanciful story in its realistic rural setting. At the same time, the landscapes are suffused with a golden glow that casts a soporific charm over the whole book. Interesting visual details abound, from the mouse’s thimble helmet to the prophetic circus posters on the walls. A great book to enjoy one-on-one."

"Graeme Base has done it again. His beautifully detailed paintings are such an important part of this story."

Graeme Base fans will enjoy the illustrations that include some of his previous books. There is a subtle sense of humor in the pictures of this title. I was a little disappointed there was nothing to look for on the full page spreads like so many of his other books. Still a 'magical' feeling story and intricate, detailed artwork.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
