The Tall Tales Of Elephant & Ant
:: by Ólafía L. Óla ::

Outrageously unbelievable tales told by two unlikely friends… or enemies… or rather frenemies!

Book cover

From time unknown, Elephant and Ant stories have been popular with kids in Kerala. (There they are known as Aanayum Urumbum stories in the Malayalam language.)

The size difference between Ant and Elephant would make any friendship between them extremely unlikely but that is just the beginning. Sit back for a roller-coaster ride between myth and reality. All Elephant and Ant stories are tall tales. The more unbelievable the story is, the more funny it sounds.

In this book, you will read some old Elephant and Ant stories and a lot of new ones. In the old stories, Elephant and Ant stories are friends. In the new ones, they are ‘frenemies‘ because it is not really clear if they are friends or enemies. Sometimes, it seems like Elephant is exaggerating everything out of proportion. At other times, it seems that Ant is really small-minded.

NOTE: This book contains the same Elephant & Ant jokes as the 2020 jokebook. This is just the illustrated version of that chapter, made specifically for young children as a storybook. Do not buy it if you already have the jokebook.
