You can't eat a book! Or can you? Watch your kids' imaginations soar as they take a magical journey with a candy floss elephant who can fly, a white sugar mouse and a rainbow chocolate serpent in Hellie the Hovercraft Elephant children's picture book. It really is 'edible literature'. With riveting rhymes, vast vocabulary, and a catchy cadence, children will love chanting along to this creative story. "And so Queek the mouse nimbly climbed on her back, and secured himself tightly without any slack. He wound her soft hair around his small paws, and took a deep breath 'til he could take no more. And into her trunk he said quite loudly, "I'm ready to fly Hellie!" And she gazed at him proudly." Teachers love this story because although Hellie is the one with the magic skill, when she meets Queek the mouse, she learns that the power of friendship is the strongest superpower of all. The story shows children how to blast through fear and zoom into fun and friendship. And it ends on a sleepy note so it's the perfect bedtime story!
About the Author
I am Carrie Mortleman and I am a children's book author & illustrator. On attending James Ruse Agricultural High School I was blessed with a very strict, very old fashioned English teacher named Miss Anderson. She inspired me. She scared me. But most of all she taught me passion, love and triumph in life and literature. I am an Australian who has lived in England, France & Spain. I have 2 English daughters and a labradoodle, and a mad Brazilian husband who fills the house with music and raw passion. I live in a sleepy little seaside town and am fairly certain that I am a mermaid or a fairy in very good disguise.
