A Lemon-Yellow Elephant called Trunk
by Barbara Softly; ill. Tony Veale (Chatto, Boyd & Oliver, 1971)
What seems at first a tale of whimsy turns instead into a rather clumsily executed parable of individual worth and acceptance. Thankfully Tony Veale draws a creditable elephant (and round-snouted giraffes). The floating artwork and limited use of colours leave an impression.
