The Elephant’s Child – Rudyard Kipling
The Elephant’s child is a story of a child elephant who was full of ‘satiable curtiosity’ and kept asking questions like ‘What made Giraffe’s skin spotty?’. In answer he would get a nice spanking from his uncle(Giraffe), aunt(Hippopotamus), and all his other relatives to whom he asked the question.
Then one day Elephant’s Child got inqusitive about what do crocodiles have for dinner.He took Kokolo bird’s advice and went to Limpopo river to find an answer.
