Publisher Description:

Here, for the first time, Pomelo leaves the safety of his garden, the only home he's ever known. Having found the courage to set off on an adventure, he takes to the road on a journey of self-discovery, hoping to find other elephants and clues about his origins. In these pages, Pomelo hears, sees, smells, and feels things he's never before experienced. And most miraculously of all, he learns about Papa and Mama. Indeed, he finds much more than he ever hoped or dreamed.

"Pomelo Begins to Grow" was a "New York Times Book Review" Notable Book of 2011.

Of "Pomelo Explores Color," Pamela Paul wrote in the "New York Times" "It's a book that's worth a second--and a third, and a fourth--look."

And of "Pomelo's Opposites," Sarah Harrison Smith wrote in the "New York Times" "One of the pleasures of this latest book . . . is that although it is witty and occasionally profound, it doesn't feel pitched at adults. . . . "Pomelo's Opposites" is the kind of book that can be enjoyed, at its simplest level, for its charming drawings and warm colors, but there's more to be found on repeated readings."

Ramona Badescu was born in Romania in 1980. She arrived in France at the age of eleven and started to write for children ten years later. She has written many wonderful books for children of all ages and currently lives in Marseille, France.
