WHORL BOOKS announces that a revised edition of ELEPHANT HIPS ARE EXPENSIVE, a children’s book by Marilyn A. Hudson, will be published in the near future.
The book, which traces how a small group of children struggle to finish raising money to bring a baby elephant to the zoo, is based on real events in the late 1940’s in Oklahoma City. Children all across the state of Oklahoma raised money to bring a new elephant to the capitol city zoo. Local newspapers featured fundraising graphs and updates
Adding to the story in this revised edition will be the whimsical illustrations of well known author and storyteller, Molly Lemmons.
Her charming pictures add to a very special story sure to please any child and maybe a few adults who remember, like Molly, of being one of “Judy’s kids.”
