Little Elliot

Mike Curato’s heartwarming, lavishly stylized, illustrated Little Elliot picture books for young readers follow the polka-dotted elephant and his best friend Mouse on a series of adventures in Big City.

“[Curato is] a terrific emerging talent, with gorgeously rendered images that bring to mind the moodiness of Chris Van Allsburg and the sweetness of William Joyce.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review), on Little Elliot, Big City
