Uku, the Giraffe and the Elephant

written by Epp Annus & illustrated by Katrin Ehrlich

Uku, the Giraffe and the Elephant_coverUku is having a snack before going to bed. Meanwhile, a giraffe pokes its head through his bedroom window, sees his comfortable bed and goes to sleep. A sleepy elephant walks by, pushes the giraffe out of bed and goes to sleep. Imagine Uku’s surprise when he finds in his bedroom a giraffe and an elephant. A perfectly charming and playful bedtime story.

Epp Annus (1969) is actually a literary scholar who sometimes writes stories for and about children. Why? Well, because she has three of these creatures at home. Because they know some things better than she does, so to write from their perspective is a way of learning about world for her.

Katrin Ehrlich (1969) has studied graphics in Estonian Academy of Arts. She has also studied at the Copenhagen Design School. Last ten years she has illustrated children’s books. This makes her very happy.
