A savannah, yes. A jungle, sure. A TREE?! Most certainly not.

La description

Elephants Do Not Belong in Trees. It’s not natural. It makes other animals uncomfortable. This is the story of Larry, an elephant who wanted to live in a tree. This is a story about being the new kid and being a little bit different (okay, A LOT different). A story about acceptance and making friends.
