Ella the Elegant Elephant by Carmela and Steven D’Amico. Ella the elephant has just moved to a new town and is nervous to start at her new school. Thank goodness her grandmother has sent her a special surprise–a beautiful big red hat. Ella is thrilled to have something so special, but at school among a sea of the same blue uniforms, Ella’s hat stands out. Will Ella and her hat find a way to fit in? An adorable story about school bullies and being yourself, the book’s exotic locale (“somewhere in the great, wide Indian Ocean lie the Elephant Islands, hidden by a fog so thick no human being has ever found them…”) and whimsical illustrations are sure to please. This book is only one of the many of adventures of Ella, so young readers can continue to delight in more fun with Ella and her friends. See this book listed in our catalog
