Book Review and Giveaway: Gunther the Underwater Elephant. Ends Dec 19th
Gunther the Underwater Elephant written and illustrated by Ginger Neilson
Meet Gunther the baby elephant who can float under water. But what happens when he floats too far from home?
My Review: While spending time with his mother and their elephant family in the jungle river, Gunther would play with his cousins because he was too young to swim alone. His cousins would hold him by his trunk and tail and swish him in the river. One day while his cousins were arguing so much they let go of him without knowing. To Gunther surprised he began to swim and did not sink to the bottom of the river.
He leant how to use his trunk as a snorkel. When he knew that he was separated from his mother and his elephant family he began look for a way to get back home. He met different creatures of the sea that helps him return home.
On his way home a jungle bird told him that something terrible has happened to his mother. When Gunther learns that his mother was captured by the hunters while looking for him, he came up with an ideal on how to rescue his mother.
Gunther’s story is so interesting, first he didn’t know how to swim but leant how by using his trunk. He then used creativity and quick thinking to help save his mother from the hunters. But he leant a valuable lesson not to float away again. Bright and beautiful colors illustrated by the author. I highly recommend this book for your children’s library and for classroom reading.
