Mocked throughout the jungles of India, the smallest elephant in the world-no bigger than a house cat-has decided enough is enough. If he’s no bigger than a house cat, then a house is where he belongs! After a long journey, this smallest elephant in the world finds himself a home with a nice little boy inside. Unfortunately, the boy’s mother doesn’t believe elephants make suitable house pets… First published in 1959, The Smallest Elephant in the World, written by Alvin Tresselt and illustrated by Milton Glaser, is a witty, sweet, and funny tale of friendship, unlikely disguise, and the search for home.
Milton Glaser is a graphic designer and illustrator. Famous for his “I ♥ NY” logo, he was the rst graphic designer to receive the National Medal of the Arts. In 1960, he and Shirley Glazer created If Apples Had Teeth (Enchanted Lion, 2017)—graphic and smart, silly and surreal, together they conjure a fantastical dream of “what if?”
