Ellie the Elephant
Inspired by Maurice Sendak’s writing and illustrations, I have written and illustrated a children’s book of my own. The story titled Ellie the Elephant is a story about an Elephant who is bullied for being different. As the story progresses, Ellie’s friends share their differences and try to comfort their upset friend. Ellie then becomes a hero after using her unique trunk to save a fellow classmate. The message of this children’s book, painted with watercolors, is to inspire children to accept and embrace their own unique characteristics, and to make children aware of the hurt that is caused by bullying.
