Picture Book Review: Elephant Island

Elephant Island by Leo Timmers

Elephant Island
by Leo Timmers

5 out of 5 stars

Elephant is shipwrecked on a tiny island, looking for rescue. But the only rescue in sight is a tiny mouse boat. When Elephant tries to get on board, the ship sinks. But Elephant is resourceful enough to create something new from the wreckage, and soon they are having too much fun to even think of leaving the new Elephant Island.

This book is so cute! Elephant is one seriously determined creature, and I love the way that he rallies others to his island, and they create their own little community there. The story is so funny that it had me giggling several times, but it is also heartwarming!

I love the amusing illustrations! There are so many little details in the ships and the island that make the art work really special. The animal character designs are so cute!
