    Author Biography Michael Foreman's numerous books for children have earned him widespread recognition as one of the world's leading illustrators. In addition to an evocative, beautifully written story, Elephant Dance also contains endnotes on the cultural heritage of India, making it a perfect introduction to Indian life and traditions. How can we help ourselves and our children keep believing in better, keep ourselves hopeful? You can write a story about anything in your pocket. Many of them wrote to my Mother for years and years and years till either they died or she died. Quentin Blake does it too - it's all in the drawing.

    It is a deliberate act of literary homage to Tolstoy as one can see in the title. Featuring old stories of trickery and cunning, fable-like tales of animals, and inspiring stories of the battles and feats of different Hindu gods. I like to put in one or two night scenes, which again give you dark blue - and, of course, there are days with blue skies. Beautifully illustrated throughout in black line and tone by Michael Foreman. I usually work on two or three stories at the same time not knowing in the beginning which one is going to be done first.

    Why do you find real life stories so inspiring? Michael Foreman: One of my nephews has done quite a bit of research but it really just unearths earlier generations of fisher-folk. The illustrated magazines that were sold in the shop often inspired him. Meeting him, it's hard to believe that his career now spans 40 years. Sometimes, amid all this blue, I have to go out of the way to put in differently coloured pictures - just to make that surprise when you turn the page. This one won't be missed.
