When mother and father elephant are lost at sea, little elephant is left all alone. That is until Old Uncle Elephant, 'who has more wrinkles than there is sand,' comes to take care of him. Lovingly, Old Uncle Elephant fills little elephant's days with trumpeting the dawn, making wishes, trying on all their clothes at once, composing songs, and making up stories. This is a sweet and gentle story of the love between an uncle and a nephew masterly contained in an easy to read beginning chapter book.
