AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Elephants never forget, so when stuttering Edmund the emu asks Sally how she got her nickname, she’s only too happy to tell. Sally is a brave elephant that loves to try new things and always pushes the boundaries. For instance, when she was younger, she went off on her own to explore and saw strange things, like humans and even a hungry crocodile. Edmund, though, wants to know why animals call her “the upside down elephant,” so she tells him about Kuril, an Aussie water rat. At first, Kuril is scared of big, loud Sally, but they soon become great friends. Despite their differences, they get along perfectly, but Sally has a problem. Kuril can see her point of view by standing on her back, but she can’t relate to Kuril’s tiny perspective. One day, they figure out a way for her to come down to his level and see the world from his height. She doesn’t care if other elephants laugh at her. Sally knows it’s important to understand our friends as much as possible, no matter how different we all can be. Sally is an adventurous elephant and an excellent influence on all the animals of Australia.' (Publication summary)
