Delightful children's book.
This is an absolutely delightful picture story book. The story is told exclusively in rhyme. I wasn't sure on first glance at the book but, as soon as I started reading it to my grandson, it became clear just how clever it is. It's not rhyming for rhyming's sake-EVERY word is important and fits so perfectly to the story, none of them seem to be selected just for their 'rhymability'. Peel the Elephant meets various creatures in the little stories within the book. You can either read it all in one go or you could do an animal story per night. We are now on our fourth reading of this lovely book now! My grandson loves it-he likes to keep going back to it-especially the stories with Camille the camel in and he is fascinated with the music extracts. Susan Joyce is an artist but on this occasion, her husband Doug DuBosque provided the illustrations in the book. They are in lovely pastel shades and add so much appeal to the story and make it a beautiful presentation. I asked my grandson what he liked best about Peel The Extraordinary Elephant so I could add some feedback from him in my review and he said that his favourite characters are Peel and Camille and he says his favourite pictures besides Camille and Peel are the pictures of trees-he says those are the best pictures of trees he's ever seen. I know nothing about Art but I have to agree with him, the delicate colours and shading on these illustrations are exquisite.
