A Little Grey Elephant

It's so grey here this week.
Half term and grey weather. So, to brighten up the greyness, here is a little grey elephant complete with pretty spots.
He notices that the tree looks very similar to himself and feels compelled to climb it but of course he's the wrong shape for climbing!
He'll stare at it for a bit and then get bored and go off and find something more fun to do.
Goodbye little elephant!

Oh! :) Thank you! I don't often use grey as a colour but I had fun putting the pink and purple spots on it to cheer it up! I shall have to use grey again I think. :)I liked drawing the shape of the elephant too!

Thanks Ruthie and Julie. It brightened up yesterday for a bit didn't it? I think my spots must have helped! :)

I love how you did this! I wouldn't think to use grey like that. :D
