Ella Elephant is afraid of the dark. Her friends try to assuage Ella's fears by
pointing out all the things that make nighttime special, like tree frogs and
stars. Then Ella finds her "very own star" - a pretty white pebble in the river
- and, feeling comforted, takes it to bed with her. When her mother bids her
goodnight, Ella is already fast asleep! Part of a series of four elephant-shaped
board books which deal with toddler experiences. Created by Karen Wallace, and
beautifully brought to life by Rebecca Harry's illustrations, Ella is a very
special character, whom young children will love.
