A story about bedtime rituals The imperial elephant, known far and wide as one of the grandest sights in the kingdom, hasn't been the same since the old Emperor died. One day a rich merchant's son decides he wishes to see the magnificent animal for himself. What he discovers is that the elephant is having terrible trouble sleeping. Can a spoiled boy who is not used to doing things for others find a way to solve the riddle of the elephant's insomnia? This soothing story by Diana Reynolds Roome, based on a bedtime tale invented by her father after his travels in the East, is charmingly illustrated by Jude Daly, whose distinctive style has won her admirers around the world.
