“We’re going to see the Elephant!” That’s what people say when they head West on a journey promising to be “something powerful strange. Like a real live elephant, but even bigger – stranger – wilder – scarier!” Lily Rose is raring to go. Along the way she’ll help stitch her family’s adventures into a grand and glorious quilt.
Inspired by a quilt sewn by young Mary Margaret Hezlep in 1859 during her journey West, readers will relish this spirited tale with its lively heroine and bold pictures, cleverly designed to include quilted elements. And they’ll have fun finding the elephant hidden in the final quilt and tracing Lily Rose’s journey from Missouri to California in the quilt border—a reminder of a trip that’s as BO-dacious as Lily Rose herself!
The Elephant Quilt is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
