Item Description...
Overview
Follow the adventures of Quinn, the mouse, who sets out to find his own spot in the great forest. A large rainstorm creates a rushing torrent of water that sweeps him away leaving him lost and alone. Remembering advice from his dad, he tries to seek out the Great Elephant for help. Along the way he meets other forest animals who claim to know about the Great Elephant and, out of desperation, he follows some of their advice only to find he's been led down the wrong path. In his greatest moment of need, will the Great Elephant hear his cry for help? In the time-honored and classic style of fables that teach truth, the allegory of the Great Elephant arrives to be added to the treasury of storybooks for teaching children and enriching adults. And the truth beautifully and cleverly rising out of the story is the greatest of all truths-finding the way to God.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A rare combination of excellence  Nov 15, 2007
Nik Ranieri has accomplished what few could or will ever do. He is an award winning Disney animation artist who has contributed to classics like Beauty and the Beast, Pocahontas, and The Emperor's New Groove. What's even better is that Nik has employed his amazing artistic ability for the glory of God.

If you've ever wondered what Disney animation and redemptive content would look like married together then Nik's children's book The Great Elephant should answer your curiosity. The story follows a young mouse named Quinn who goes on a journey in search of "the great elephant." Along the way, Quinn meets a vast assortment of characters who challenge his trust and even a snake that persuades the young mouse to take a "wide road." This being an allegory, we learn that there is more to this "elephant" than meets the eye.

Many allegories are short-sighted and leave very little to the imagination or for further discovery. Ranieri, however, manages to plot the story at a good pace. Our three year old holds on to every word and can practically finish every sentence. The illustrations are what you would expect from a Disney professional and offer more detail than any book on my kid's bookshelves. The Great Elephant lays a great foundation through child-friendly literary eloquence. Your kids will want to read it again and again but it's rare for adults when a children's book doesn't wear thin after repeated readings. I highly recommend this great book, The Great Elephant.
 
absolutely fantastic - even for preschoolers!  Jul 22, 2007
This is a FANTASTIC allegory depicting "the great elephant" as Jesus and a "needing to fly with the wings his parents gave him" mouse named Quinn. My preschooler receieved this book as a gift, and it quickly became one of her favorites at age three. So, while the reading LEVEL may be higher, and preschoolers won't catch everything, the book is well written and exposes preschoolers to higher thinking and great vocabulary.
 
An entertaining story teaching children to question ideas outside the truth of The bible and trust Jesus for help   Oct 14, 2005
Quinn is a mouse who faces danger and deception in the jungle. Quinn's adventures nicely serve as an brief and entertaining story teaching children to question ideas outside the truth of The bible and trust Jesus for help as they live through the days of their lives. Brilliantly written and superbly illustrated by Walt Disney animator Nik Ranieri, "The Great Elephant" is an attractive and engaging picturebook allegory that will help young readers prepare for living in a world that constantly teaches ideas that may go against their family's faith and beliefs.

 
MORE THAN KID'S STUFF  Sep 17, 2005
I was pleased to see something like this offered in the current "cookie cutter" marketplace. The author has thoroughly explored some serious issues with beautiful artwork and a well thought-out storyline.

Our daughters (3 and 6) enjoyed the story and its my hope that as they grow older, the story will take on a deeper meaning as their faith matures.

Bravo, Mr. Ranieri!
