Yusof Gajah's The Real Elephant won the Grand Prize of the Noma Concours in Tokyo in 1996. It was first published in Bahasa Malaysia by Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka and in English by Oyez!Books. This is a new edition of the book in a big book format with a hard back support. In this edition, Yusof Gajah's wonderful illustrations are fully displayed, making this both an art book as well as a wonderful book for children to read. The big size format also makes it useful for reading to a group of children.
