Ellie the artistic elephant returns in this new picture book celebrating friendship and inspiration by acclaimed author-illustrator Mike Wu.
A panda has joined the zoo, and just like Ellie, she's an artist!
Ellie is thrilled to make a new friend, but with everyone so impressed by Ping's distinctive painting skills, Ellie starts to question her own talent.
As she learns more about her new friend from China, though, Ellie finds that a fresh perspective can lead to new inspiration--and maybe something wonderful they can create together!
