Blue Elephant is losely based on the illustrated childrens book “BIJ DE NEUS GENOMEN” by Loes Riphagen
(published in the Netherlands in 2015 - in Germany end 2016).

In this very special book with beautifully hand cut illustrations she tells the story of how the elephant got his long nose.

Loes Riphagen is an acclaimed childrens book illlustrator and author. Other books are "Animals Home Alone", "Zzz" and "Little Super Heroes".
