‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
by Il Sung Na
Age Range: Under_5
One day an elephant finds a thingamabob. He isn’t quite sure what it is, so he decides to experiment and find out. He also asks all his friends from a bear to an ostrich but none of them know what it is.
Korean illustrator Il Sung Na’s quirky characters in pen-and-ink watercolour illustrations are child-like and rich with colour. There are lovely embellishments on the thingamabob with a design of swirls, raindrops, and clouds. Children will have fun following the story as the animals discover what the mysterious thingamabob is!
