Dumbo, the Flying Elephant
Helen Aberson - 1941
Anyway, this particular Spring was. There was a new baby lion, a new baby zebra, a baby bear, a baby hippopotamus, a baby camel, a baby giraffe and a new baby elephant. Everyone made a great fuss over the baby elephant because he was the cutest of all. His Mother Ella was very proud of him. She caressed him with her trunk while she listened to the other elephants praise him."The Disney feature film Dumbo originated with a story by Helen Aberson and Harold Pearl... and it appeared as a Roll-A-Book. A Roll-A-Book was a distinctive format -- It featured about a dozen illustrations which appeared on a short scroll that was built into a box and the reader would twist a small wheel at the top of the box to get to the next panel illustration. Apparently no known copies of this original Roll-A-Book survive today... Shortly after the Roll-A-Book version, the story and illustrations were reprinted in a regular book edition of no more than one thousand copies.(Information adapted from Jim Hill Media.)
Lisa Ann Marsoli - 2003
The youngest brother, Kenai, vows to avenge his brother's death in spite of the totem and counsel he is given by the village elder: "Let love guide your actions." But Kenai scorns this notion: "You really think love has anything to do with being a man?" he cries. When he finally encounters the bear, however, something strange happens. Kenai is blinded by shafts of light, and spirit animals surround him. Suddenly, the boy becomes a bear--and his one remaining brother Denahi is hunting him! It takes a friendship with a bear cub and a long journey for Kenai-bear to finally embrace the true meaning of his totem. Whether they see the movie or not, children will enjoy this Disney storybook, with its surprisingly lovely illustrations and simplified narrative. It's likely the book will inspire readers to see the movie for the full dramatic effects--and then use the book to relive the action. (Ages 5 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
