MakeWay For Ella

I used to teach at a rural school in Sri Lanka. Whilst I was there I noticed there weren’t many story books available embracing Sri Lankan culture. On my last visit while I was staying in the mountain village of Ella I began to create an idea based on a little elephant with a big dream. My idea is still in development, below are some character ideas.
