By The School Librarian
This is a lavishly illustrated real life account of an important day in the life of a very special elephant, Balarama. . . .The Lewins have an impressive facility for catching action which belies the notion that picture are fixed moments in time. This book gives its readers more than just a story, as it has an intriguing reference section about elephants, Asian or African.
