Written by Dominic Smith (Dynamite MC)

Welcome to The Bird and the Elephant. This new and exciting children’s book will take you on a philosophical poetic journey of who, what's, why's and where's. Starting with an introduction it is then broken up into 10 poetic discussions. It also features 11 beautiful hand drawn illustrations. Reading age is around 6-9 years old depending on the child.

A bird is flying high one day when he decides he needs to take a rest. He glances down below and aims for a large rock. But it isn't a rock! He shockingly discovers he's landed on an elephant's back. They begin having a conversation. The bird is impatient and hot headed while the elephant is calming and wise. Through their discussions the bird learns a lot about life and ultimately, himself.

The discussions are:

    Who are we? 
    Where do we come from?
    Why are we here? 
    Why do bad things happen?

The book is 5 x 7 inches and 36 pages, black & white.
