Jurg Lindenberger, C K Smouha


The story of a mouse and elephant who become pen pals despite some minor size differences.

CK Smouha is the author of Born Bad, Sock Story and Iced Out (Cicada 2018 and 2019).

Freddy the mouse is practising his skateboarding when a vast, white shape descends from the sky. It’s a huge letter from a science-loving elephant called Annabel! The two begin a correspondence in which they learn about each other’s very different lifestyle. One day, Freddy’s letters stop coming and Annabel must go to the big city to help him out of a pickle.

This is a madcap romp about two friends who could not be more different. Hilarious illustrations play with scale discrepancies and are complemented by die cuts, flaps and special colours, bringing a message of tolerance and acceptance to life.
