Book review: The Elephant of Frimley by Nicholas Rawls

The Elephant of Frimley* by Nicholas Rawls is a love story – between two sisters and the elephant they discover in their back garden and also between a father and the daughters he wrote this story for.

Rawls’ story, illustrated by Louise Jewell, started as a bedtime story for his children and I love that he’s turned it into something he can share with others. The rhyming verses work well to engage young children and the illustrations are beautifully emotive.

I think the story is a little old for Jenson at the moment as he prefers board books with bright colours and something a bit more interactive but, as he loves elephants (and copying the sounds they make!), I’ll definitely be reading it with him at a later date.
