The tree elephant

November 17th, 2020

Victoria-based Russ Willms has written and illustrated the picture book Elephants Do Not Belong in Trees (Orca $19.95), out this spring, about an elephant who wants to live in a big bushy tree despite objections from the current residents: Bird, Squirrel and Monkey. For children aged 3-5, it is ultimately about acceptance, making friends and being different. Willms also illustrated the Mr. Christie’s Book Award winner and Governor General’s Award finalist, Brewster Rooster (Kids Can Press, 1993). 9781459825994
