A fascinating story for children, and always a favorite, the Elephant Prince has enchanting pictures to help tell this ancient tale. Elephant-headed and big-bellied, mischievous and sweet, Ganesh is one of the most familiar faces in the world. But why does he have the head of an elephant? Set in the Himalayas in a time of gods and goddesses, The Elephant Prince tells the story of the remarkable bond between a mother and her son, a remorseful father, a generous elephant and a gentle god. Belgin Wedman's jewel-toned illustrations, reminiscent of classical Indian miniatures, complement this poetic story of one of the most beloved gods.
