I See an Elephant  tells the tale of a gentle elephant who wishes he was a bird. He starts to build a nest, but when the birds laugh at his attempts and try to chase him away, Elephant takes a stand, declaring that he should be able to live as he chooses. Realising that he is right, the birds accept him as one of them, and help him transform into an ‘ele-bird’.
