Gunther, the baby elephant, discovers he can swim under water. But what happens when he swims too far from home?
Gunther the Underwater Elephant is a lovely written and beautifully illustrated book about the adventures of a little elephant named Gunther. His love of swimming and adventurous spirit takes him far away from home. Gunther meets a whale, sees a sunken ship, sparkling coral and brightly colored fish. When his worried mother starts looking for her baby, she is captured by hunters. Gunther and his elephant family come up with a clever plan to save his mom.
My kids loved Gunther's adventures and the cute illustrations. The book is recommended for kids 4-8. It is written and illustrated by Ginger Nielson who has illustrated a number of other children's books as well. Find out more about Ms. Nielson at her website and blog.
Gunther the Underwater Elephant was published in the summer by 4RV Publishing. I do have one suggestion for the publisher - correct Ms. Nielson's name on the cover and on the title page. Misspells are embarrassing.
