Description: What happens to an elephant whose trunk is so long that he trips and falls whenever he walks? This is little Vinayak’s problem. No matter what he does, he cannot keep his long, long trunk out of the way – until one day, a very special friend offers an unusual solution. An original tale by Shobha Viswanath, vibrantly illustrated by Shilpa Ranade with pastels, this book subtly brings to light how each of us is special in our own way.
