About My Book

Meet Ellie

Ellie Goes To The Zoo is a wonderful children's story about an elephant that goes to the zoo for the first time and in her child-like excitement wanders away from her mother, and soon finds herself lost amongst the crowd. Who will help her find her mother? The Lion, The Hyenas or The Beaver? Or, will help come from an unexpected friend?

"Well young lady, that is a pickle. I'm afraid I can't help you. You see, I haven't eaten lunch yet and I don't do anything on an empty stomach. Would you care to join me for a bite?"
Ellie Goes To The Zoo  

The Hyenas

"Poor baby, can't find her mother.
Hey, did you hear the one about the elephant who couldn't find her mommy?
They continued to joke.
"Try the beaver"

The Beaver

"No. No.... no time. I'm busy, busy, busy. There is a leak in my dam. I've got to fix the leak"
"Break.... take a BREAK"
"You missy obviously don't know how serious a leak is"
