In the High and Far-Off Times the Elephant, O Best Beloved, had no trunk. He only had a blackish, bulgy nose, as big as a boot, that he could wriggle about from side to side; but he couldn’t pick up things with it.
But there was one Elephant – a new Elephant – an Elephant’s Child – who was full of ’satiable curiosity, and that means he asked ever so many questions.
