A fact-filled visual treat for elephant fans by acclaimed wildlife photographer Steve Bloom


Why do elephants flap their ears? How much do they eat? Why do they roll in mud? This book answers these questions and many more, including intriguing facts about elephants' trunks, tusks and tails, their families and friends, what they get up to from dawn to dusk, and the special relationship between elephants and humans and elephants and other animals.


'Beautiful, dramatic and poignant in equal measures'

'Entertaining and dramatic, Elephants also has an educational aspect and will be highly popular with all wildlife enthusiasts'
Magpie That

'A charming book … jam-packed full of interesting facts … it really is one of those books the whole family can enjoy'

'Accessible, non-patronising text accompanies photographs of every elephantine element, from close-ups of astoundingly long eyelashes to portraits of elephants that appear to be made of chocolate because they are so covered in mud. For all ages'
Jewish Chronicle
