Grandma Elephant's in Charge

author: Martin Jenkins

Read and Wonder

An entertaining, educational look at the everyday life of a family of elephants —who never forget who’s in charge. Grandma! In lively prose interspersed with fun facts, Martin Jenkins spins a striking story about this no-nonsense matriarch and her remarkable brood, while Ivan Bates brings the great beasts to rumbling, tumbling, lumbering life.
