The first book I have a clear memory of reading and feeling in any way affected by was a Little Golden Book called The Saggy Baggy Elephant. Its plot –– or at least the little of it that my unreliable memory now permits me to recall –– related the adventures of a cute if somewhat mawkish baby elephant who was teased by all the other animals he knew because his skin hung so loosely on his puny, under-developed body. It was a tale of an individual being unjustly singled out and persecuted by a mob for being ‘different’ and ‘ugly’ and, for that reason alone, was bound to appeal to a child whose sense of empathy was as strongly developed as mine happened to be.
