When Olive’s dad drags himself to work in the morning, the elephant goes with him. When he comes home again, so does the elephant. It’s always there, heavy and silent, casting a shadow of sadness over him. Olive knows it has been like this since her mother passed away when she was a year old, and she can’t stand to see her father burdened anymore. With help from her grandfather and her best friend Arthur, she hatches a plan to rid her family of the elephant once and for all.
Before long, she’ll learn that while happiness isn’t that simple, small things can move mountains–or elephants.
Award-winning author-illustrator Peter Carnavas portrays a child’s response to her father’s depression with naïve wisdom. In defiance of the looming grey presence, The Elephant is an intergenerational story of resilience, family, and hope.

“Ο μπαμπάς σου δεν θα σου φτιάξει το ποδήλατο μέχρι να φτιάξεις εσύ τον μπαμπά σου”. Η στενοχώρια του πατέρα της είναι τόσο μεγάλη, που η Όλιβ τη φαντάζεται σαν έναν πελώριο ελέφαντα που τον ακολουθεί παντού. Ο γκρίζος ελέφαντας είναι κολλημένος διαρκώς επάνω του σαν σκιά, και η Όλιβ εύχεται να μπορούσε να κάνει κάτι ώστε να τον διώξει μια για πάντα. Με τη βοήθεια του παππού της και του καλύτερού της φίλου, του ‘Αρθουρ, η Όλιβ θα βάλει μπροστά ένα καταπληκτικό σχέδιο. Θα τα καταφέρει όμως; Πώς μπορείς να διώξεις κάτι τόσο μεγάλο;
