The Legend of the Sleep-Eating Elephant
A very hungry, sleep-eating elephant has been caught invading the village cabbage field. He must be stopped before the crop is completely wiped out. Many try and fail, until the honeybees of the village come up with the perfect plan to thwart the elephant. The Legend of the Sleep-Eating Elephant is a modern pourquoi tale. At the crux, it shows how we must depend on even the tiniest of creatures for our very survival. This book is based on the actual work of zoologist, Dr. Lucy King, who studies the interactions between elephants and honeybees in Africa and Asia. Savetheelephants.org gave permission for me to include a special feature in the back of the book, “The Truth Behind the Legend,” which includes facts about African elephants, honeybees, and beehive fences.
"The Legend of the Sleep-eating Elephant is a very clever story that touches on a problem farmers have had to deal with for many generations."
