An Elephantasy

María Elena Walsh

CHILDREN'S LITERATURE, 1966. ALFAGUARA NEW EDITION, 2011. 224 PAGES.

Dailan Kifki is a friendly elephant that appears one fine day at the house of the main character and changes the life of the entire family. Because, while it may be hard to believe, raising an elephant is not easy, especially if the elephant falls asleep on top of a plant that sprouts up into the clouds. A novel in which the most hilarious situations are rendered with a tenderness that makes them unforgettable

"Young and old will enjoy the work of this unique artist." 

EL MUNDO

 

"What was written by María Elena Walsh can be seen as the most important work of all time in its genre, comparable to Lewis Carroll's Alice or Pinocchio"

LEOPOLDO BRIZUELA

 

"A facinating, funny novel with a wiocked sense humor."
