Esme the Elephant is the biggest of all, but oh how she wishes she could be small. At hide and seek, she’s the first to be found and worries about squishing others close to the ground. But when a storm rolls in and sets the jungle alight, Esme knows she has a fire to fight! Esme the Elephant is the fifth book in the Animal Alphabet series.
The Animal Alphabet is a series of books teaching children their ABCs through fun and extraordinary children’s stories about animals – some of them more unusual than the others. Each original story is based on an important message for children to learn – being friendly, sharing with others, saving money – and filled to the brim with animal facts.

About the Author
Kaley Owen didn’t grow up dreaming of being a writer. As a matter of fact, she never knew what she wanted to be. Having spent time working with children, Kaley loved encouraging them to explore and be creative, helping them learn whilst having a good time.
Her work with children inspired her to write the Animal Alphabet series. Fun and educational, each book is filled with laughs and teaches children a valuable lesson.
When she’s not writing, she enjoys travelling, singing lead vocals in a band, languages and spending time with her friends and family.
About the Illustrator
Graeme Holding’s style of drawing is bright, fun, traditional but quirky. He likes to draw animals bringing a sense of personality to my characters. Born in Helsby, Cheshire he now lives in the industrial town of Runcorn with his wife and four children.
Drawing is an important part of Graeme’s life and something he has always been passionate about. Graeme relished in any drawing activity as a child at school. He was particularly inspired by a children’s book illustrator that visited my primary school, Anthony Lewis. He knew then, that this is what I wanted to do when he grew up. It just so happened that Anthony was Graeme’s cousin and has been a big influence on his work ever since.
