Six Blind Mice and an Elephant
What is an elephant really like? Six blind mice scamper out of their mouse-hole to find out - and come up with six very different ideas! Is an elephant like a wall? A tree? A spear? A fan? A snake or a rope? Children will love to help the six blind mice discover the true wonder of an elephant in this beautifully illustrated animal fable from India.
