Title

Siam: Kenneth on When an Elephant Stole Some Cookies

Description

Once, Kenneth was in a Chinese cookshop to get some cookies, and elephants and the mahout were nearby. As he was holding his cup in his hand, all of a sudden a great big trunk came sliding in over my shoulder and sucked up my cookies. They all just went right off my plate.Kenneth looked up, and the elephant was looking at him benignly. The elephant had lifted the entire roof of the building up onto his shoulders. Kenneth had sensed the roof going up, and noticed dust coming down into his cocoa, but before he could make sense of that, this sinuous trunk had slid over his shoulder and sucked up his cookies
