From Babar to Dumbo, the elephant has long fascinated children and their parents in equal measure. Here, eighty stunning photographs encompass every aspect of the elephant’s life and world: elephants big and small, African and Asian, in the wild and domesticated, at play and at rest. Whether taken from the air, from underwater, or from the side of a jeep, these images will capture the imagination of any child.

Steve Bloom’s extraordinary photographs depict the elephants in their natural environment as well as their unique relationships with people. Here are elephant babies playing in the dust, families rolling in the mud, polo-playing elephants, elephants at bath time, impressive herds roaming the plains, and much more. The entertaining text by David Henry Wilson provides an almost encyclopedic range of facts about elephants, from why they flap their ears to how much they weigh and how much they eat.
Steve Bloom is a highly regarded natural-history photographer. He has published many titles with Thames & Hudson for both adults and children.
