PaulineBook - 1999
Pauline's parents don't allow her to leave their nest until they decide she is big enough, but even then she feels very small. Everything around her is bigger than she is -- especially her best friend, Rabusius, who is an elephant. One terrible day hunters come into the jungle and capture Rabusius and put him in a truck. Pauline is sacred, but knows that it's up to her to free him. She disguises herself as a monster and in a daring rescue frightens the hunters away and saves her much larger friend. With bright-hued artwork and a classically straightforward text, Georg Hallensleben demonstrates the power of imagination.
