Uncles, Aunts And Elephants: Tales from Your Favourite Storyteller
Age Range: 9+ years
A timeless selection of writings from India’s best-loved author
I know the world’s a crowded place,
And elephants do take up space,
But if it makes a difference, Lord,
I’d gladly share my room and board.
A baby elephant would do…
But, if he brings his mother too,
There’s Dad’s garage. He wouldn’t mind.
To elephants, he’s more than kind.
But I wonder what my Mum would say
If their aunts and uncles came to stay!
