Jin Pyn

The elephant and tree were happy and free—until one day they found themselves chained and bound.

Set uniquely in black and rhyme, this little book became the first children’s book in Singapore to be translated into Japanese, and later had its English- and Spanish-language rights sold. What started as a simple intent to be a “voice for the voiceless” quickly snowballed into an award-winning animation and a play. Lauded by critics as a classic, it is now being re-released for a new generation of young readers.

The endearing friendship between an Asian elephant and a tree is more relevant than ever.

About the Author
Everything seemed to fall in place when Jin Pyn wrote and illustrated her debut children’s picture book, The Elephant and the Tree. The English Literature graduate always had a heart for animals and children, a love for the arts and a gift in writing poignantly. When not blissfully lost in the greens, she can be found on an adventure in a children’s story or sharing them aloud with other young readers.

“Through its combination of stunning design and simple, appealing narrative, The Elephant and the Tree is likely to have a lasting impact on its readers.”
—Marjorie Coughlan, editor of Mirrors Windows Doors
