Illustrated by Alan Aldridge
Renowned illustrator Alan Aldridge introduced the fantastical world of the Butterfly Ball in this breathtaking modern classic.
Down in the meadow where the corn cobs grow,
A grasshopper jumped on an elephant’s toe.
The elephant cried with tears in his eyes,
Why don’t you pick on someone your size?
