Elephants Have WingsElephants have Wings

My journey with elephants has been emotional with a commitment to peace – which is how ‘Elephants Have Wings’ was created – a philosophy picture book in words and the art of Anna Pignataro capturing the strength, spirtuality, leadership, protection of elephants.

Their survival is being threatened by poachers and loss of habitat.

How extraordinary to find hidden in our bushland, fellow authors Sharon Rundle and Graham Rundle and their healing place of nature, spirits, Eastern faiths and elephants.

David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust  is today the most successful orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world and one of the pioneering conservation organisations for wildlife and habitat protection in East Africa.

For my birthday, I am adopting an orphan elephant –

I'm a writer committed to kids in particular. Adults are good too. Want to bring hope through story to my readers. Awarded an Order of Australia, Lady Cutler Award and a Lifetime International Award for Literacy for my body of work, spreading literacy is really important. I'm head of SCBWI Australia East & New Zealand, patron of Monkey Baa Theatre, Ambassador for the Premier's Reading Challenge, Writer Ambassador for Room to Read ... among other roles. I also love heritage and adapting to enhance the lives of people today, which is why I restored The Hughenden Hotel 1870s and The Residences Centennial Park - the only homes in the parklands which are open now for accommodation, events and lots of nature.

    Susanne, I’m reading aloud Elephants Have Wings at the Out of the Box Festival for under 8s at Brisbane’s QPAC Sunday next. Have my toy elephant and book background information ready to go. The book will also be for sale in the State Library bookshop. They invited me and it was my pick. Yay! xx
