Editorial Reviews


"A witty, satirical book about the relationship between mortals and an immortal creator." -- Orson Scott Card

"Dale Estey's elephant is curious and whimsical and a little bit impulsive, but it still stays on the path and gets there one step at a time." -- Tom Allen

"If Aesop had been one of the Old Testament prophets or one of the New Testament apostles,
The Elephant Talks to God is the book he would have written. ... Anyone who has ever wondered what Mother Goose tales and the Parables of Christ share in common will find the solution in this witty, whimsical book. May God bless Dale Estey and this beautiful testament." -- George Elliott Clarke

"This book has much in common with prayer which is the art of paying attention to one's life. Without moralizing, it moves respectfully through whimsy, sensuality, intellect, intimacy and mystery. Like the biblical book of Job it opens into the inscrutable and wondrous heart of things. For anyone willing to go there, this is a good book." -- Peter Short
--This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Inside Flap

What is the meaning of life? What is love? Why don't butterflies live longer? These are just a few of the questions that a curious pachyderm asks the Almighty in this collection of endearing tales. And God answers him, sometimes cryptically, sometimes humorously, but always with love and patience.

This new edition of The Elephant Talks to God includes most of the original stories from the popular 1980 collection as well as many new ones. Dale Estey is a writer, teacher, and arts activist, whose curiosity rivals that of his capricious elephant.
