Alexander The Elephant is a collaboration between Pat Davern (guitarist in the band Grinspoon) and award-winning UK artist Martin Chatterton.
Alexander, a rather small, rather lazy, pink and purple spotted elephant, lives on the island of Zanzibar with his best friend Miss Alicia Peabody. When dastardly loggers threaten the island's Great Tree, Alexander is the only one who can help. But even though Alexander is an elephant, he has a secret: he's not very brave. Not even a little bit. Can Miss Alicia Peabody, along with Clever Uncle Gerald, Pedro the parrot, and a steady supply of red-ant sandwiches, help Alexander find his courage to save the Great Tree?
This heart-warming story of bravery, friendship and red-ant sandwiches accompanies a highly addictive and specially-written musical soundtrack recorded by some of Australia's best-loved and best known recording artists.
Love Police and the rock band Grinspoon have had a long relationship, so it only made sense for guitar slinger Pat Davern to hit us up for his first publishing venture. A sweet, enviro lovin’ story of Alexander The Elephant and his best friend Miss Alicia Peabody. Originally a work begun by Pat’s father, the book delivers with a great story for the ages with incredible characters created by master illustrator Martin Chatterton. ABC Music is also releasing a CD version of the book with songs by Pat, Megan Washington, Alex Lloyd and more.
