The Big Question

Publisher: Book Island


Elephant has a big question on her mind: How do you know you love someone?

Fortunately it is time for the annual meeting of everyone and everything, and they will help her find the answer. Turtle normally chairs the meeting, but his wife is sick, so Ant has the task.

Elephant gets many answers. Love makes Mouse feel as strong as an elephant. When Snow White kisses her prince she forgets her wicked stepmother. Stone feels nice and warm next to his sweetheart.

Elephant thanks everyone for their answers; he understands that love can be many things. But Ant thinks everyone has talked rubbish and he goes home alone and lonely.

Unusual and atmospheric illustrations complement this philosophical picture book.
