Reviews

"Little Elliot, with his upswept trunk and his angel-wing ears, is a cuddly-looking elephant with pastel polka dots all over his body, all the more amusingly incongruous living in a 1930s-esque version of New York City . . . Children will relate to Elliot's experiences." --The Horn Book

* "Curato, a debut author and illustrator, tucks several gentle messages into one simple story that's perfect for the age group. It is, however, his almost cinematic artwork that's the real showstopper." --Booklist, starred review

"A tiny, spotted elephant tackles the challenges of city life . . . The simple story is told in 17 short sentences that allow Curato's magnificent 1940s-style illustrations to carry the tale." --School Library Journal

* "He's a terrific emerging talent, with gorgeously rendered images that bring to mind the moodiness of Chris Van Allsburg and the sweetness of William Joyce." --Publisher's Weekly, starred review
