... is just a picture of the Elephant’s Child
going to pull bananas off a banana-tree (see illustration) after he had
got his fine new long trunk. I don’t think it is a very nice picture; but
I couldn’t make it any better, because elephants and bananas are hard to
draw. The streaky things behind the Elephant’s Child mean squoggy marshy
country somewhere in Africa. The Elephant’s Child made most of his mud-cakes
out of the mud that he found there. I think it would look better if you
painted the banana-tree green and the Elephant’s Child red.
