" In The High and Far- Off times, the Elephant, O Best Beloved, had no trunk. He had only a blackish, bulgy nose, as big as a boot, that he could wriggle about from side to side; but he couldn't pick up things with it. But, there was one Elephant - a new Elephant - an Elephant's Child - who was full of satiable curiosity, and that means he asked ever so many questions. And he lived in Africa, and he filled all Africa with his satiable curiosities.."

Hard cover book in good condition with no rips or tears. Two words on page three have been underlined in red ink. The book has a lot of shelf wear to the edges, corners, and spine. See the pictures for more details.
