Unwrapping Some Illustrations for 


The Book

This heartwarming book teaches the power of bestowing kindness towards one another.  Arthur discovers a weeping elephant and finds out that the elephant cannot remember his name or where he is from.  Arthur's heart is touched and he reaches out to help the sad elephant however he can.   Together they have success and luckily the forgetful pachyderm regains his memory.  The threads of helping, memory loss,  companionaship and ultimately friendship run throughout the story.  It is a lovely tender tale that both the young and old will appreciate and  enjoy.  The illustrations are full of emotion and so well done.  I love them.  I highly, highly recommend this book.
