The book is a humorous account of John's expedition sponsored by Life Magazine to answer the question, "Which way did Hannibal cross the Alps?" The only way to prove it, was to bring along an actual elephant!
Here are elephant cartoons that I drew to add humor and variety to the book.
Reaching the summit!
This chapter, Roman Holiday, is at the very end of "Alpine Elephant" and tells of our invitation to Rome by the University student association after Jumbo's Alpine crossing.
