ianmclean The elephant's child asked some monkeys, "How do you move through the trees?"
ianmclean "Oh, oh, led go od my node!"
ianmclean "Father," said the elephant's child, "I am curious about the world. I want to go exploring."
ianmclean "Don't be too curious, my child..."
ianmclean It's all the fault of that curious, young, elephant child.
ianmclean all elephants have long trunks today.
ianmclean And that is why...
ianmclean "We have long back legs."
ianmclean "We just grab a vine -- and swing!"
ianmclean The baby elephant asked some big cats, "How loud can you roar?"
ianmclean Later, the elephant's child met a zebra. "Why are you wearing pyjamas?"
ianmclean "I just woke up!"
ianmclean The elephant's child broke his father's rule.
ianmclean He went to the green river.
ianmclean "Don't you know? Crocodiles like to eat curious baby elephants!"
ianmclean Next, the elephant's child met a snake.
ianmclean "How do you walk without legs?"
ianmclean The snake said, "I wriggle on my belly."
ianmclean The elephant's child asked some frogs, "How do you jump so high?"
ianmclean The elephant's child asked the crocodiles, "What do you like to eat?"
ianmclean "And please stay away from the green river."
ianmclean The elephant's child soon found a parrot, and asked, "Why do you look so pretty?"
ianmclean "I was born this way!"
ianmclean Then, the elephant's child asked the bat, "Why do you fly in the dark?"
ianmclean "So I can get home."
ianmclean "Giraffe, why do you have such a long neck?"
ianmclean "To reach the leaves at the top of the tree."
ianmclean Long ago, all elephants had short noses. Instead of a long, grey trunk, each elephant had a little nose shaped like a boot.
ianmclean "The elephant's child", or "How the elephant got its long trunk."
