Being inspired by many visits to the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. when her children were young, author Katherine Melvin has blended her vivid imagination with her knowledge and skill as a storyteller to create an exciting new children's book, complete with colorful and captivating illustrations by Mike Motz.

Background Information


When the question “What would you do if an elephant escaped from the zoo and showed up at your house?” occurred to me, I played what if. My love of words, poems, and plays gelled to create a fun read aloud book filled with vivid illustrations. I have entertained many children with the poem and finally decided to turn it into a children’s storybook.

I remember reading and reciting poems from the Childcraft Poems of Early Childhood book I read when I was young. I spent many happy hours with those poems and can still recite them! All I need is an audience. I love word puzzles and rhymes. It made sense once I heard the first line that I would noodle it and puzzle it until a story developed. I’m excited. The next book in the series is coming together. That elephant is bored at the zoo with nothing to do. I can’t wait to l see what adventures he has next.


I've written numerous plays, skits, and monologues.

Additional Information

Coming soon An Elephant's Visit website with interactive games for children. There will also be a place to vote on whether the elephant should return to the zoo or stay at the house.
