Happy Friday all. Today I am delighted to be on the blog tour for the adorable Erica's Elephant by Sylvia Bishop sharing my review.
Erica's Elephant was one of the most charming and adorable stories I have ever come across. I read the first page to get an idea of what it was like and the next thing I had read it in one sitting. This is the story (as the title suggests) of Erica and her Elephant. Erica lives on her own while her Uncle travels around the world. On the morning of her tenth birthday she finds a very confused elephant on her doorstep, she feels sorry for him and invites him inside and unlikely but beautiful friendship evolves.
Erica's Elephant was one of those books that despite being a children's book, managed to be so on point with the way the world works, and that when you actually look at it at a different angle, you realise that sometimes the world can be a pretty silly place with its rules and regulations.
The elephant really is the star of this story though with his simply adorable mannerisms and his relationship with Erica. I wanted to be friends with Erica and her Elephant as their friendship is really something else. It also takes a look at how you can't always judge people by their appearances and not to make snap decisions about a person until you know all the details.
I want ALL children (and adults) to read this book, despite a slight melancholy undertone, Erica's Elephant is very uplifting and it managed to touch a little place in my heart. I think people of all ages will take a little something away from this adorable story.
Adorable, charming and uplifting, one of my favourite books this year. Sylvia Bishop is one to watch!
