An elephant was rocking… 1

La Baracca - Testoni Ragazzi - Bologna - Italy

Enrico, the little yellow elephant

Once upon a time, there was an elephant who liked to rock
Enrico was yellow, like lemons
He was yellow, like the sun
Enrico was yellow, like a yellow ball
Enrico rocked and sang…


We were dreaming of creating a series of short, animated stories for children from 1 to 3. With An elephant was rocking…, we are presenting the first three pilot episodes.
The animated drawings by Enrico Montalbani and the texts by Roberto Frabetti revolve around the stories of many elephants and colours, swinging and rocking everywhere… singing that beautiful nursery rhyme “Un elefante si dondolava…/ An elephant was rocking…”. They swing and rock everywhere: on a swing, on a see-saw, on a pendulum clock, on a bed sheet drying in the wind…
Boy, how they rock!
