The Elephant and the Tree
Written and Illustrated by: JIN PYN LEE
The elephant and tree were happy and free—until one day they both find themselves chained and bound.
Originally set uniquely in black and rhyme, this little book became the first children’s book in Singapore to be translated into Japanese, Spanish and traditional Chinese. English language rights were also sold. What started as a simple intent to be a “voice for the voiceless” quickly snowballed into an award-winning animation and a play. The endearing friendship between an Asian elephant and a tree is more relevant than ever. Lauded by critics as a classic, it is now being re-released for a new generation of young readers. No longer in black, the new edition is filled with colour and delivers a revised ending that delivers a message of hope.
