The Caldecott Honor book and modern classic now in boardbook format. Finally!
Nearly twenty years ago, Ed Young translated the ancient parable of the seven blind men and the elephant into a modern children's classic, one as simple as it is profound. A lesson in colors, numbers, the days of the week and most important, knowledge, this beautifully illustrated book has stood the test of time and continues to entertain and teach. Now in board book format, even the youngest children can experience the beauty and wisdom.
Ed Young received the Caldecott Medal for "Lon Po Po: A Red-Riding Hood Story from China, " as well as Caldecott Honors for his illustrations in "The Emperor and the Kite, " written by Jane Yolen, and for his book "Seven Blind Mice." His work appears in "The Hunter: A Chinese Folktale" by Mary Casanova and "Donkey Trouble, " which he authored; "White Fang" by Jack London; and "Yeh-Shen: A Cinderella Story from China" by Ai-Ling Louie. He lives in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York.
