Queenie: One Elephant’s Story in the USA

Yesterday, ‘Queenie One Elephant’s Story’ was released in America by Candlewick Press. When I found Queenie and wrote her story I never dreamed she would walk this far. I continue to visit school children and senior citizens groups sharing her story and I can no longer imagine my life without having known her.

  1. christinemareebell Huge congratulations, Corinne, on your Candlewick launch of Queenie in America. This wonderful, gentle creature deserves to be known across the planet. Hers is an incredible story reflecting the challenges many animals faced/face in zoos both last century and, in some countries, still today. It reminds us of the joy and wonder they brought/bring to we humans and it is marvellous that so many seniors you meet remember her and have stories to share. You and Peter Gouldthorpe have created a classic that will live on in hearts and minds, just as Queenie has done. Congratulations again. xx Chris
