20099 Abba by Stevens oldchildrensbooks


A lovely, simple story, not quite a fantasy, not quite a parable, of a little elephant who must travel through dangers to find Einhorn the Great White Buffalo, the only being who can help his friend. A perfect book to read aloud to a thoughtful young child.



Circus Baby Petershams Macmillan 1950, 1st or early.

The Circus Baby.

In one of the Petersham's most charming books, Mother Elephant tries to teach her baby to eat at the table, just as her friends the clown family do. She herself is too big to fit at all and the baby makes a mess just as the clowns arrive! NOTE: THIS BOOK HAS BEEN SOLD.



Agapanthus is Lost.MacFarlane./Margaret Lees, ill. NSW, Bay Books, 1970

Agapanthus is Lost.

"One day a circus came to town. 'I have never seen and elephant and an elephant has never seen me,' said Agapanthus. 'We must go today." A funny story in bright stylized art, hard to find. Note: This book has been sold.



Kellogg's Funny Jungleland. (1909).

Kellog's Funny Jungleland.

Very funny creatures, which allow for multiple transformations. This toy was published by Kellogg over many years, with gradual shifts in illustration. These are abundant, and I picked this up because it was available and I was collecting advertizing pamphlets, but you can get one in nicer condition for a reasonable price. Note: This Book Has Been Sold.
