Mocked throughout the jungles of India, the smallest elephant in the world--no bigger than a house cat--has decided enough is enough and that if he's no bigger than a house cat, then a house is where he belongs
After a long journey, this smallest elephant in the world finds himself a home with a nice little boy inside. Unfortunately, the boy's mother doesn't believe elephants make suitable house pets... First published in 1959, The Smallest Elephant in the World, written by Alvin Tresselt and illustrated by Milton Glaser, is a witty, sweet, and funny tale of friendship, unlikely disguise, and the search for home.
